Join our growing movement.
Being an Emotional Support Human costs nothing more than your compassion and time. Pledge your support for mental health.
Choose your response to common scenarios and practice talking about mental health.
“When you're depressed or anxious you are not in a place to support yourself. Having someone there to help and push you along makes all the difference.”
– Amy, community member
