It isn’t easy to open about about your mental health, but I’m not surprised this hashtag has gotten such a great response.. Social media, particularly channels like Twitter, can be the perfect place to get your feelings out in few words.
The #mymentalhealthin5words tagged tweets are a mix of profound, encouraging, amusing, relatable, and brave. Some very tongue in cheek, some messages of inspiration, some coping mechanisms or tips, and others satirical reflections on the state of the world. We’ve shared a selection of our favourites below.
