Millions of Americans are affected by mental health conditions every year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Even if you haven’t personally experienced mental illness, chances are you know someone who has.

Partners in the project include Bring Change to Mind, Crisis Text Line, Joy Harden Bradford (host of the mental health podcast Therapy for Black Girls) and Evryman (a global community of men that work together to better themselves and challenge traditional masculinity).
YouTube’s nine new playlists cover subjects like anxiety, therapy, and self-care, and feature some popular faces, including YouTube creators Daniel Howell, Depression to Expression, Meghan Rienks, and . Check out each playlist for yourself below.
