Salata announced that it has partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to provide mental health resources to minority communities throughout the United States. From July 20-24, Salata will make a $2 donation for each order placed through their mobile app up to $10,000. Orders placed through Salata’s mobile app, which is available for download on the Apple App and Google Play stores, will specifically help provide mental health resources for minorities.
A NAMI partner since 2019, Salata has worked to advocate for access to mental health resources for their team members and guests. Salata’s previous donation to NAMI was made on behalf of their team members and supported NAMI’s overall goal to build better lives for Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI’s You Are Not Alone campaign features the lived experience of people affected by mental illness to fight stigma, inspire others, and educate the broader public. The campaign builds connection and increases awareness with the digital tools that make connection possible during a climate of physical distancing.
“Anyone can experience the challenges of mental wellness, but background and identities can make access to mental health support much harder,” says Allison Cocker, communications manager at Salata. “We want to use our platform to bring forward tools and resources that support our communities. Mental wellness is one of our brand pillars and we are proud to expand our partnership with NAMI to support National Minority Mental Health Month.”
Established in 2008 to increase access to mental health services and identify barriers to care for minority communities, National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is celebrated each July. Salata’s donation aids the development of new resources for mental health in the minority community.
Salata supports mental wellness through educational content, activations and activism to help all guests understand the connection between nutrition and mental wellness. They are a proud NAMI partner and look forward to supporting this and future initiatives designed to provide access to mental health services for all communities.
