For this year’s Friend/Ships celebration, we’re partnering with Seize the Awkward to encourage friends to reach out and start a conversation about mental health, particularly if a friend is struggling or going through a tough time. Creators like Billie Eilish, Markiplier, Liza Koshy and Noah Cyrus are telling their stories about supportive friendships, and we want to hear yours, too! Tell us and Seize the Awkward about a time you’ve helped a friend in need, or a friend has helped you.

Visit to learn more about starting a conversation about mental health.

Share your story on social media using #gw2friendships & #seizetheawkward We'll collect it here for the world to see

Only on Facebook? Post your story on our official page.
