One Million Lives
It’s hard to change mental health until we can measure it.
It’s time to take matters into our own hands.
Mental health is solvable as a challenge if we do it together, we use technology, and we measure results. With One Million Lives, changing a whole societal problem is in the palm of each of our hands. It is time we move beyond awareness…to put our hands up together and, by checking our own mental health, lead the way for others to check theirs too.
By regularly completing a check-in, we‘ll be better equipped to understand how we are currently coping and be able to generate real-time, personalized solutions. We‘ll be able to start conversations and get support much earlier.
Our goal is to create a ripple effect across the globe, where over one million people are inspired to complete a mental health check-in. We want to break down the barriers that hinder honest conversations about mental health and encourage an open culture of support. We believe that one million lives are in our reach. With you beside us, we can reach so many millions more. If ever a problem was worth coming together to harness our values, our networks and our technology, it is this. And the time is now.
One Million Lives check-in tool
Our check-in tool has been developed incorporating the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K10), a globally recognized psychological screening tool. The tool allows users to understand their current mental health strengths and challenges and provides suggestions for how to improve mental health based on your own scores. For those who might be feeling well, the tool also assesses early signs and proactive strategies, such as sleep, exercise or social media behaviours.
One Million Lives is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any mental health disease or condition. Please seek immediate help from trained medical physicians if you suspect you are suffering from any mental health or other medical condition.
