ANI-MAY MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH
May is the Mental Health Awareness Month. It give us a unique opportunity to start as many conversations about the stigma of mental health.
We believe Anime give us a unique opportunity to start as many conversations about the stigma of mental health. It moves people from silence to conversation, from isolation to community, from pain to hope and healing. Through Anime, people are carrying with them the possibility to make the world kinder and supportive for those struggling with mental health.
Our 2018 Impact
Anime and Manga have been one of the few mediums that openly deals with issues like depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and many other conditions. Characters suffer from traumatizing experiences, constantly battling social anxiety, suicidal thoughts, guilt over the loss of a loved one… These themes eases us into a journey of hope that is at same time pure and uplifting, yet heartbreaking and bittersweet.
During the 2018 Animay Mental Health Awareness Month, we explored thirty Anime with different characters displaying a mental illness. We educated the public about the facts, statics and what they can do to bring those numbers down.
During this year's Animay Mental Health Awareness, we are shipping 1000 Anime Therapy Kit at no cost. As you already know, social anxiety affects a fair number of our community. It comes in many forms, for many reasons and is a very personal thing for anybody dealing with it. There are many of us who aren't able to attend conventions due to their struggle with mental health and we need your help to bring the Anime Therapy Kit to someone you know who you think they need one to their doorsteps.
