Mental health is an incredibly important topic that people are reluctant to talk about. There is a stigma behind it. People have been mocked and ridiculed for openly speaking about their mental health.
Facebook is going to donate $1 million in honor of World Mental Health Day. The plan is to release a sticker pack on Messenger called Let’s Talk. For each sticker sent by users, Facebook will donate $1 until it reaches its $1 million goal.
Facebook has also put out Let’s Talk Stories filters. The World Health Organization helped Facebook put them together as a way to get people to reach out to those who are struggling.
If you are suffering from mental health issues, please reach out to a trusted friend, family member, or professional. There is help out there and a shoulder to lean on.
