On Monday, the cast of Ted Lasso visited the White House to meet with President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden to stress the importance of mental health for everyone.

“No matter who you are, no matter where you live, no matter who you voted for, we all – probably, I assume – we all know someone who has struggled, that’s felt isolated, that’s felt anxious, that’s felt alone,” Jason Sudeikis, who played Ted Lasso, said to reporters.

“While it’s easier said than done, we also have to know that we shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help ourselves,” he continued. “And that does take a lot, especially when it’s something that has such a negative stigma to it such as mental health, and that doesn’t need to be that way.”

Sudeikis ended with the message of checking in on friends and loved ones. “I truly believe that we should all do our best to help take care of each other,” he said.
