Hello, you wonderful buttercups!
Today, I wanted to talk about a really lovely project that began a few months ago, which I think will be of interest to many of you!
#TalkMH is a Twitter chat that was started up by the lovely Hannah, who suffers from mental health issues herself. Her Twitter page is here. The chat was started up so the Twitter community could talk about mental health openly and comfortably, without the fear of being judged.
Each week, a different topic is discussed and allows people to not only talk about it, but also to relate to other people and meet new people- I have made some wonderful friends over the time that I have been involving myself in the project. It is absolutely wonderful to see people supporting others, creating new friends and giving some great advice!
The chat runs every Thursday at 8:30pm for an hour and like I said above, it speaks about a different topic every week. There are also opportunities for people to guest host a #TalkMH Twitter chat and if you are interested in doing this, just email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org with what topic idea you have in mind!
Like myself, Hannah is a mental health blogger and I love her posts- She also does beauty and general life posts, so caters for a variety of people. You can find her blog at littlethoughtsblog.com.
The chat community has become rather large over the past few weeks and has even trended on Twitter a few times. Just shows how important it is to talk about mental health and help destroy the stigma that is attached to all things mental health related.
I really hope that many of you get involved in this- It is most certainly something that is close to my heart.
