Link – Instagram account encourages those with mental illness to share their stories

I always love it when someone takes this technology, and all this connectedness, and does something GOOD with it:

“One month ago, frustrated by the stigma and silence that often surrounds mental health disorders, John Sciarretta created an Instagram account that asks people to share their stories about how they coped with their illnesses.

The account, called The Mental Minute Project, allows people to post one-minute videos describing their struggles and how they deal with them.

“Explain what you suffer from and how you cope with it,” said Sciarretta, who himself has suffered from addiction and mental health disorders, in the video that launched the project. “I’ll share it on the page and we’ll go from there as a team.”
