Anime For Humanity is a 501©(3) charity non-profit dedicated to use Anime, Cosplay and Video Games as a medium to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health.
We began as an anime club with a passion for anime and community. Throughout our meetings, the anime club became a safe space for members to express themselves, be less introverted, and share their love for anime as their therapeutic support system. We realized anime can bring people together and help people reach out to find community.
There are many who suffer from mental health issues silently. They might not be ready to reach out, know where to look for help, or find the courage to step into therapy. Our mission is to reach them and provide them with hope and the mental health resources they need. Taking time to understand their mental illness and celebrate what brings us together in conventions can be one of the most direct ways we can reduce social isolation and challenge the stigma surrounding mental health.
We believe we can create a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated, and ultimately prevented. We affirm that attendees deserve to know it’s okay to talk about what they are struggling with. It’s easy to feel hopeless but we have hope that things will change. We’ll do our part to make sure they know they are HEARD SEEN and LOVED.
Through Anime For Humanity, people have the opportunity to make a tangible difference in raising awareness for mental health! You can make a donation to help us print more Anime Therapy kits and ensure that people have the mental health resources in hand to use in times of crisis.
