About

Anime For Humanity

Anime For Humanity is a 501©(3) non-profit charity dedicated to using anime, cosplay, and video games as a medium to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health.

therapy kit?

The Anime Therapy Kits contains anime recommendations, mental health resources, contact information, and a spark of joy to remind people that it’s okay to reach out and ask for help. Getting an Anime Therapy Kit in someone’s hands means we’ve reached them with tools and resources to use in times of crisis.
