Project UROK, The Harry Potter Alliance, and Jack Quaid launched the #MyHungerGames campaign to help raise awareness about the impact of income inequality on mental health. 

Actor Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games, Vinyl) invites viewers to join Project UROK and The Harry Potter Alliance in fighting the stigma around mental illness and economic inequality by using the 

#MyHungerGames hashtag to tell their stories on social media. Users can also submit video testimonials via Project UROK's website or by e-mailing projecturok@gmail.com

#MyHungerGames was born out of 2014’s social media conversations around the Mockingjay movie release and the real-life impact of economic inequality. 

The #MyHungerGames blog will serve as a place to learn about how economic inequality impacts real people in areas like mental health, criminal justice, the environment, and more. It will also serve as a call to action, offering opportunities to visitors to help decrease the stigma and increase access to mental health services in their communities.

Throughout The Hunger Games series, many characters deal with mental illness. Katniss’ mother lives with depression, Haymitch struggles with addiction, Peeta becomes dissociated from reality, and Katniss struggles with PTSD following her time in the arena. Yet throughout the series, there seem to be no mental health resources available.

In Panem’s poorest districts, people who need quality mental health services are forced to go without. Sadly, this injustice isn’t limited to dystopian fiction. In the real world, many people go without mental health services because of economic inequality. 

Contribute to the campaign by using the hashtag #MyHungerGames and join the conversation!
