Norwood, NJ (May 15, 2024) -- Valley Spring Recovery Center today announced its participation, in partnership with more than 2,300 leading brands, nonprofits, and cultural leaders globally, in the fourth-annual Mental Health Action Day, to be held on Thursday, May 16. Spearheaded by SHOWTIME/MTV Entertainment Studios and TaskForce, Mental Health Action Day is an open-source and decentralized global movement to encourage and empower people to take action for mental health. This year’s call to action is to dedicate one hour to social connection. Valley Spring Recovery Center is proud to be activating this year by sponsoring the New York Yankees Mental Health Awareness night, bringing together community members from New Jersey and New York to participate in this significant event.

“We are proud to come together with this diverse group of influential and purpose-driven partners who share our commitment to empowering and encouraging people to shift from mental health awareness to mental health action,” said Brian Cellary, Founder and CEO of Valley Spring Recovery Center. “When we recognize that mental health is health, we have an opportunity to demystify, destigmatize, and normalize taking actions to help ourselves and each other.”

This year’s call to action is to dedicate one hour to CONNECTION. Participants are encouraged to take their first steps towards mental health action — whether for themselves, for their loved ones, or to advocate for systemic changes through a wide range of tools. Free resources and tools, such as an employer toolkit and platforms for hosting and organizing events, are available for organizations and groups to help support their audiences through a myriad of ways - from starting a meditation practice to learning how to support a friend to advocating for change.

Cultural leaders, brands, and organizations including TikTok, Pinterest, The Trevor Project, and the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, are among those joining Mental Health Action Day 2024. A full list of partners is available at
