NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 10, 2019
Mediaplanet recently announced the launch of the most recent edition of the “Mental Health” campaign. This campaign will educate readers on the importance of destigmatizing mental health and ensuring that those affected get the help they need. Now is a critical time to continue discussions surrounding these subjects as 1 in 5 adults in the United States has a mental illness and the rate of suicide is on the rise. This campaign will empower readers to take control of their mental health and encourage them to help their loved ones do the same.
Grammy-nominated musician Mary Lambert graces the cover of this edition. “Advocacy and talking about mental health within the context of art is very important,” says Lambert. Lambert discusses the role mental health plays in her life and how she has been able to overcome her personal struggles including coping with childhood abuse, sexual violence, and living with depression and bipolar disorder. She emphasizes how crucial it is to have a strong support system to navigate difficult times. “I remember I had a really, really rough night and I just called a friend and my friends came over and—I’m getting emotional thinking about it—I was so, so grateful.”
David Harbour, Stranger Things actor and star of the upcoming Hellboy reboot, also lends his voice to this campaign to help educate readers through sharing his powerful story. “I wanted folks to know that although I’m living my dreams now, this is not the way it’s always been,” explains Harbour, who lives with bipolar disorder. “My mental health disorder is something I live with, but it does not define me,” he continues. Harbour is using his platform to help destigmatize mental illness and tackle toxic misconceptions. “If someone suffers, they need your help, not your distrust or fear.”
