I am officially a mental health ally.
While I am definitely a member of the mental health community, I am now also officially a certified support for those experiencing mental health struggles as well.
The Be There Certificate is a jack.org and Born This Way Foundation (i.e. Lady Gaga’s Foundation) creation that is free of charge! This course is 100% available and accessible to anyone with internet connection! So yes, if you’re thinking you may want to do this… You absolutely should!
Just go to betherecertificate.org to get started on becoming a better support for those with mental health struggles (including yourself).
After finishing this course I feel more confident in my ability to be there for someone else. Thank you Lady Gaga, The Born This Way Foundation and jack.org for putting this course together. You are undoubtedly going to help many people in need of comfort and support during times of mental tumult, uncertainty, and pain.
We all need an ally when we are going through it, and now I am a certified ally.
Now, that’s lit.
