Mental Health Awareness Month 2023
"Studies have found that people who show kindness and concern for others had a 23% lower level of cortisol – the stress hormone – compared to the average population. You’ve got a natural stress-reliever, just by showing compassion for someone else."

With youth support resources more readily available now more than ever, Gen-Z are the most educated generation when it comes to mental health - but why are they classified as 'The Sad Generation'? While Gen-Z encounter many of the same stressors as generations before them, many experience a more intense version of them given their increased exposure to the myriad of news and social media outlets that exist today.​

This Mental Health Awareness Month, Skin Proud are shifting the focus to positivity and kindness by highlighting the positive mental health benefits of paying it forward to our community. Commencing on April 28th, World Pay It Forward Day, Skin Proud will launch its ‘Pay It Forward For A Brighter Future’ campaign, continuing activity throughout the month of May to align with Mental Health Awareness Month.
Throughout the month of May, we’ll be using our platforms to champion a range of youth Mental Health organizations who are doing important work for Gen-Z in the mental health space; bringing their missions to the forefront of the conversation with our community and celebrating their efforts.​

We will also be donating a portion of our proceeds and are encouraging our community to get behind the cause as well. Do your part this Mental Health Awareness Month by nominating and voting for the youth Mental Health charity that you feel is most deserving of the donation and at the end of May, we’ll donate the proceeds of the fundraiser to the charity of our community's choosing.​
