Get AdvocacyAnswersHelp

UnderstandUs provides advocacy and awareness but we are not, nor do we intend to be mental health professionals. If you require immediate assistance please seek appropriate help.

When should I seek help?

No one can go through life alone. There is never a right or wrong time to seek help, whether you are helping yourself or seeking help from others. Even if you are experiencing instances of mild mental health barriers or just feel different, talking to people is always a good idea.

Where can I find help now?

We have a team of mental health professionals who advise us, but we are not licensed or equipped to provide you with direct supports or services. UnderstandUs is an initiative to raise awareness and combat the stigma of mental health. Below are a list of community programs and services that we feel may be a first step in seeking help:
