Let's Talk About Mental Health is an Instagram account that gathers stories and sentiments from real people who struggle with mental illness. The excerpts are taken from full stories submitted on their site. The stories are self-submitted and if you notice, some brave people are tagging their full names to the posts. The purpose of the whole movement is to break down the stigma of mental health. As the Instagram profile says, 1 in 4 people struggle with mental illness. The stories are a refreshing. The bravery of those who submit is inspiring. Regardless of whether you're an onlooker like me or an active participant in this site, Let's Talk About Mental Health just took on the stigma in a full-blown staring contest.
Hey all, since launching this Instagram last week I've been overwhelmed with all the amazing and brave people who have come forward with stories. New stories will be posted over this next week on the website (link in profile). This is a quote from a new story about anxiety from Andrew who lives in London 💙
