#SAVE – Creatives for Mental Health Awareness is a digital campaign put together to raise awareness to Mental Health in Nigeria and to sensitize Nigerians about the challenges of Mental Health and the importance of Mental Wellness.

We are bringing together different creatives from different industries and sectors to lend their voices and their crafts by bringing attention to Mental Health in Nigeria.

The creative digital campaign engages different sectors of the Arts, Media, Technology and other creative industries. Participants of the digital will create a piece each (based on their specialized field) to illustrate mental health, stand against the stigma mental as well as spread their message of hope to Mental health survivors, with the campaign’s theme “SAVE” as it’s core message.

#SAVE - (using it’s literal meaning which is; ‘To Rescue’, ‘To Keep Safe’)

The theme was chosen based on the stigma that surrounds mental health in Nigeria and the lack of understanding or awareness of several mental illnesses which intersects with the everyday signs of a person living with mental health challenges or disorders as well as the subtle cry for help. #SAVE hopes to change the perception of mental health in Nigeria, educate citizens about the different types of mental health difficulties and disorders in our society today.
