Mental health has long been considered a taboo topic, but that is slowly starting to change. In recent years, more and more people are becoming comfortable talking about their mental health and seeking help when needed. This is partly due to the rise of new organizations and initiatives that are changing how people approach mental health.

More and more organizations are starting to talk about mental health openly and honestly. This is helping to break down the barriers that have long prevented people from talking about their mental wellbeing. These trailblazing organizations are also helping to destigmatize mental health and make it more acceptable to seek help.
