We’ve all been touched by mental health in some way. Whether it is something you struggle with on a daily basis, you have a friend or loved one that is struggling or you have felt the devastating effects of losing someone to suicide, we have all witnessed it. For that reason, we decided to create Fandom for Mental Health. This fundraiser will work to bring awareness and to raise money for 4 organizations that are striving to erase the stigma of mental health and become a lifeline to those that are in need of help and guidance.
