May is
Mental Health Awareness Month

Connection is the key to emotional well-being. Whether it’s your roommates, your family, or members of your favorite fandom, you can flourish when you have people to rely on whenever things get tough. No matter who you are or what issues you’re dealing with, your people are out there—and connecting with them can be life-changing or even life-saving. 

Browse our Mental Health Awareness Month resources to find ways to connect with others and get connected to the mental health care you need and deserve. Life is challenging enough as it is. You don’t have to go it alone.

JED and Mindset by DIVE Studios collaborate for K-Pop and AAPI-focused content series, starring SEVENTEEN’s WONWOO.

In his 3-part video series, WONWOO opens up about the uncertainties he’s had in his career, how he deals with burnout, and what his fellow SEVENTEEN members and CARATs mean to him. 

The second of three episodes is now available to view globally for free on Mindset’s YouTube Channel.

How to Get Connected

Take Action for Mental Health

One of the best things we can do for our mental health is take action and make change. Join us this Mental Health Awareness Month in supporting the emotional well-being of teens and young adults, and discover how activism can be healing in hard times.

Connection Is Self-Care

When times are tough, we need to feel understood and know we are not alone. That’s what connection does. Get inspired by teens and young adults who take care of themselves by connecting with others, and find playful practices that will work for you.
