Sharing – How To Post About Mental Health Without Sounding Like A Heartless Jerk
Maybe this is the best advice in the article:
“When in doubt, log off, take care of your own mental health and be kind.”
I know many of you have seen countless comments and memes in recent weeks regarding some famous people and their mental health. You may have even laughed at a few, though I hope you haven’t shared any.
If you have, I need you to think about the message you’re sending. You’re not hurting Kanye by sharing that meme, more than likely he will never know.
