About Us

1 in 5 people live with a mental health condition. Chances are you know someone who does. They are our friends, family members, colleagues, neighbors, and classmates. For many, the stigma associated with mental illness keeps them from speaking up and getting the support they need for recovery.

How can you help? Start by listening.

Listening can be one of the most powerful ways to support someone facing mental health challenges. I Will Listen encourages open and honest conversations about mental health. The campaign brings together college campuses, workplaces, and other communities to start conversations, learn more about mental illness, and to understand what stigma is and how to overcome it.
