Why We’re Proud to Partner with The Mighty

Why We're Proud to Partner with The MightyOne of the pleasures of working in helping educate the world about mental illness and mental health issues over the past two decades is seeing so many great ideas and services pop up and take bloom. People and thought leaders who look at a problem and say, “Hey, I better we can help out here!”

The world of mental illness — and its associated discrimination and prejudice — is a big, too-often-ignorant place. It needs all the help, light, and attention it can get.

That’s why today I’m pleased to introduce our new partnership with The Mighty.

With a problem as big as mental illness is, it’s not going to be solved overnight by a single individual. Instead, it will take hundreds of thousands of leaders around the world to help us rid society of the discrimination and prejudice that comes with talking about mental health and mental illness. Disorders such as depression, attention deficit disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and debilitating anxiety won’t go away on their own. Nor will people “just know” that there is help and treatment for them just as readily as for any medical condition.

That’s why I reached out a few weeks ago to contact the good folks who bring us The Mighty.

The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder and disability. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues. They want more than information. They want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges.

The passionate, dedicated people at The Mighty focus on helping people affected by mental illness and mental health concerns — invisible, often chronic conditions that people (still!) have a hard time talking about. We hope by partnering with The Mighty, it will enable us to help and reach even more people.

Here are two examples of the kind of stories you’ll find on The Mighty: What Nobody Tells You About Self-Care and What It’s Like to Have ‘High-Functioning’ Anxiety. They publish new stories daily.

The new partnership will bring Psych Central’s resources in front of The Mighty’s wide-reaching readership. Psych Central will now have a growing home page on The Mighty where people can get involved with The Mighty directly, share their story, and help spread awareness, compassion and hope related to mental illness.

We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty today, to help make your voice heard.
