We’re excited to collaborate with streamers and content creators in saying that it’s okay to talk about mental health — it’s okay to ask for help. We need your voice in this conversation. Think about your efforts as not only raising funds for TWLOHA but also smashing stigma. The money you raise will help TWLOHA reach high schools, colleges, and communities across the country and nation with this message and connect people in need to local mental health resources.Fundraise
Here's how you'll help make a difference in the lives of those struggling.
