Using NIMH’s Education and Awareness Resources

These education and awareness resource pages contain social media messages, graphics, and videos that you and your organization can use on your own platforms (such as a website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, and more) to provide access to research-based mental health information and raise awareness. Please use hashtag #shareNIMH on social media to be a part of the conversation.

The NIMH Statistics section features interactive data visualization tools and sharing capabilities. This section includes statistics on prevalence and treatment utilization for mental illnesses, and possible consequences of mental illnesses, such as suicide and disability. You can customize and incorporate NIMH statistics into your own materials (such as presentations, fact sheets, and webpages). You can also share on social media, and feature statistics in support of specific health observances.


Hashtags are a way of tagging content to make it possible for others to easily find messages with a specific theme or content.
