Take a Stand: Social Media Activations

How I Look/How I Feel Challenge

Join the #HowILookHowIFeel challenge to show that life is more than pretty pictures, and that young people struggling with mental health challenges are not alone! You are encouraged to share the juxtaposition of how you look, immediately followed by an image depicting how you “really” feel inside. Add an end card to your video from our social media toolkit to share important mental health statistics that will ignite conversation and spread awareness.

 

Ask A Therapist

Access to mental health resources is vital; and this month, we’re bringing the therapist to you! Be sure to follow us on Instagram, because every Monday and Wednesday, our story will prompt you to “Ask a Therapist.” Leave your questions in the question sticker, and every Friday a different therapist will answer selected questions.

 

Just Checking On You

How are you feeling, REALLY? Every Tuesday, tune in to Didi Hirsch’s Instagram story to let us know how you’re doing. Every week you can look forward to one of our VIP advocates checking in on you and inviting you to show us how you’re doing using the “add yours” sticker. We hope that this weekly campaign will encourage you to check in on your loved ones and to ignite conversation around mental health.
