Maybelline New York recently launched its global philanthropic initiative, Maybelline Brave Together — a cause dedicated to breaking the stigma around anxiety and depression while addressing challenges and providing resources to those in need.
Through two years of extensive research, Maybelline found that early intervention paired with the right resources and access to 1:1 support can make all the difference in a young person's life and since COVID-19, the need for resources has only increased
Maybelline has committed to donate $10M over the next five years to global and local mental health organizations, some of which include: Crisis Text Line, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), and The JED Foundation.
Maybelline deployed a digital resource site to make expert advice easily accessible 24/7, which will feature tips from experts, including Elyse Fox, Founder of Sad Girls Club, Larissa May, of Half the Story, and Liz Beecroft, Licensed Master Social Worker, psychotherapist & mental health advocate.
The Brand is also working with Dr. Kathleen Pike, a Psychologist at Columbia, to compile a global report focused on anxiety and depression in Gen Z women.
This virtual event will empower those who feel powerless as having a more powerful identity by unleashing their mental indomitable spirit and further reinforcing the fact that they will not let their mental health battles diminish their wellbeing.
I will be attending this Saturday and hope you will, too!
