As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, Check Your Head: Mental Help for Musicians podcast has teamed up with MTV Entertainment Group, along with over 500 brands, non-profits, government agencies and cultural leaders in supporting the first-ever Mental Health Action Day on May 20.


The announcement comes over one year into the COVID-19 global pandemic which has not only taken a toll on the physical health of people across the world but has also negatively impacted mental health.

According to the site, "Mental Health Action Day is an open-source movement of brands, organizations and cultural leaders to drive culture from mental health awareness to mental health action."  Its mission is "to encourage and empower people to take mental health action -- whether for themselves, for their loved ones or to advocate for systemic changes, because mental health is health." The day was planned with TaskForce, "a cultural organizing agency that builds capacity for those taking on the most pressing challenges facing our communities, our nation and our world."

Each episode features an appearance from a top mental health expert. – Continue reading Mason Bugaresti’s feature on the Samaritanmag website.
