The Pilot Mental Health Campaign (PMHC) is a non-partisan, grassroots organization committed to advocating for legislative change in how mental health issues are handled within the aviation industry. Founded by a coalition of aviators, healthcare professionals, and policy experts, we strive to create an environment where pilots can seek help without fear of professional repercussions.

Our mission is to reform FAA regulations concerning mental health and establish a culture within the aviation industry that places a higher emphasis on the well-being and safety of its pilots, while enhancing overall flight safety. We must come together to advance a culture of health and wellbeing in aviation.

We've successfully garnered the support of multiple members of the U.S. Congress, initiated public dialogues through national media outlets, and built a rapidly-growing network of volunteers and donors committed to our cause.

Our Values

We believe in and advocate for:

  • focus on pilots' health and wellbeing
  • inclusion in aviation
  • transparency in bureaucracy
  • evidence-backed medical policies
