There’s no doubt about this, the more people get used to seeing and hearing about mental health issues among their friends and people they follow on social media, the more likely they’ll see it as no big deal to actually talk about them. I’m in.
And if you really want to be a Stigma Rebel, you’ll encourage others to talk and share more too. Start small by sharing mental health posts that interest you on social media. Just because an article about postnatal depression interested you, it doesn’t mean you have it! If it interested you, who knows how many of your friends might be interested in it too? And who knows how many of those friends might be suffering in silence? That article could be the one thing that encourages someone to seek help. Be a Stigma Rebel. Share that thing!
