Now — more than ever — it’s important to check in on your friends.
Not only is it Mental Health Awareness month, but it’s also the time of year that most young people would usually have a lot to be celebrating — like prom, graduation, and gearing up for summer break. Missing out on those important life experiences due to important COVID-19 precautions, and feeling isolated at home can be lonely.
That’s why Addison Rae, Bryce Xavier, Meghan Trainor and more of our favorites joined forces for the “Whatever Gets You Talking” music video as a part of the Ad Council’s Seize The Awkward initiative. Together, they’re empowering teens to reach out to a friend who might be struggling with their mental health!
The vibrant visual highlights different ways you can start a conversation, and brings those ideas to life through colorful bursts of animation. And the best part? The campaign has also created over 70 specially crafted conversation starters and GIF stickers on GIPHY to give you easy-to-use tools to check in on the people you care about the most!
Addison, Bryce and Meghan aren’t the only ones passionate about this cause! Here are 11 stars who have opened up about mental health.
