Outside of the foundation, what does Madhappy do for mental health?
Outside of The Madhappy Foundation, we’ve worked hard to use our platform to create additional conversation surrounding mental health.
In 2019, we launched The Local Optimist (TLO) with the goal of creating an online community of optimists. TLO is our free mental health resource blog featuring new educational and destigmatizing content every week. From toolkits on different mental health topics to interviews with advocates across all walks of life, it’s an accessible resource for people who are looking to explore and learn more about their own mental health.
In 2021, we launched The Madhappy Podcast. The show is hosted by two of our founders, Peiman Raf and Mason Spector, and features a wide range of creators, professionals, speaking about their personal journeys and experiences with mental health. Our goal is to inspire listeners to take their mental health more seriously and to continue to remove the stigma around having these conversations. With each episode, we hope to facilitate important and often overlooked discussions while providing concrete ways for our audience to stay optimistic and energized.
As we continue to build Madhappy, we look forward to expanding & growing our presence in the mental health space beyond The Madhappy Foundation.
