Empowering a Silent Community: Social Media & Mental Health


This presentation arose from observations and personal experience of the negative ways people with mental health issues are often treated in society and from research into how this comes about in part via the mainstream media.

The intention is to inform people of the context of their health, their diagnosis and the media so that they are equipped to challenge prejudice effectively and introduce other people to the concepts covered. You may edit and comment on this presentation and I hope you do.

It’s the first draft of what – ideally – will be developed into a better resource for people to tackle the issues we face as a society in the widespread prejudice against people with mental health diagnoses.
