Walgreens drugstore is taking steps to improve access and fuel discussion with its new mental health campaign. Joining forces with the nonprofit organization Mental Health America, the company has changed its website to include a portal that will offer services to those struggling with mental health problems and aid them in accessing resources close to them.

By partnering with a variety of organizations, Walgreens brings awareness to issues and helps to fuel other mental health campaigns. Included on the website are a collection of articles related to diagnosing problems and questionnaires that are created to help people understand whether or not they need to seek out help as well as the best way to do so. In addition, "telehealth solutions" are made available, which are a service that connects people with a therapist via video-chatting.
