It’s safe to say the Love is Louder movement is a sister campaign of the “Its on my Mind ” PSA. Both are built on the philosophy that we need to be there for one another and promote love, acceptance and understanding. While the “It’s on my Mind” campaign encourages those struggling with depression, emotional health issues and/or thoughts of suicide to speak up, the Love is Louder campaign encourages us all to be more empathetic and supportive of one another. Drew Seeley and I recently attended an event hosted by Brittany Snow and the Jed Foundation to raise the volume and prove that Love is Louder than hate. Let’s put an end to bullying.

Love is Louder was started by actress Brittany Snow, The Jed Foundation and MTV to build on the outpouring of support online after the lives of multiple teenagers were lost to suicide in September 2010. This movement strives to amplify the momentum of other inspiring online campaigns and invite anyone who has felt mistreated, misunderstood or isolated into the conversation. We are here to raise the volume around a critical message — that love and support is more powerful than the external and internal voices that bring us down, cause us pain and make us feel hopeless.
The more voices that join the movement, the louder the message becomes. #LoveisLouder.
