To honor World Mental Health Day, the Indianapolis Colts are improving.

World Mental Health Day, a day devoted to spreading awareness and instructing others on the importance of prioritizing mental health, brings people from all over the world together in Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Colts are taking part locally through their Kicking the Stigma campaign.

 

In order to promote mental health awareness and fight the stigma frequently connected with mental health disorders, the Colts and the Jim Irsay family established Kicking the Stigma back in 2020.
They’re carrying out that plan this week!

The Colts will stop by a neighborhood high school on Tuesday to offer support to students who might be experiencing mental health issues.
Together with students from Western Boone Junior Senior High School, Colts athletes and cheerleaders will host a mental health meet-up.

The newest Colts PSA then begins on Tuesday with its Shining a Light presentation on Monument Circle in the center of downtown Indianapolis.
The song is titled “Stronger Together” and stars the Irsays, Anthony Richardson, Ryan Kelly, Shaquille Leonard, DeForest Buckner, Kenny Moore II, Zaire Franklin, Grover Stewart, and Jelani Woods.

 

The presentation starts at 8:14.

“You never know who might be listening.
You never know the one person whose realization that they are not alone will be impacted by that 30-second or even 15-second PSA, according to Kalen Jackson, the Colts vice chair and owner.

 

Also on Tuesday, the Colts will join Project Healthy Minds at the biggest event ever held in support of World Mental Health Day in New York City.
During his speech, Kalen Jackson will discuss the Colts’ initiatives to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness and how they are changing Indiana and the world.

 

There’s a lot more to this than just raising money, and that’s why Jackson said, “We talk about the awareness piece and the stigma piece so much because it’s still the biggest barrier when it comes to this topic.”.

 

The Colts’ Beyond the Sidelines charity event, which coincides with World Mental Health Day, will take place on Friday. The funds raised will go toward the Kicking the Stigma action grants, which support various charities and other groups that promote mental health awareness or offer mental health treatment services.

 

The funds will be used to support organizations that work in the field of mental health all over the state.
