1 Million Mohawk Challenge!

The You Rock Foundation, an organization that spreads awareness about mental health by interviewing popular musicians as a catalyst for conversation, has launched the 1 Million Mohawk Challenge. The unique campaign aims to create awareness and conversation about mental health, substance use, and suicide prevention by using your hair to talk about the brain underneath it.

The 1 Million Mohawk Challenge will challenge people to shave, spike it up or dye a mohawk into their hair live on Facebook or Instagram or posting a photo. Additionally, the participants will take a pledge and make a statement as to why they are choosing to stand up against stigma and speak up for mental health.
