While there’s always discussion on how social media (our constant need for “Likes” and the consumption of superficial celebrity lives) is damaging to us – I want to take a different approach and highlight how much progress is being made to destigmatise mental health in Ireland by both our own actions and those of organisations across online channels.

I will focus on social media campaigns run by businesses & charities, the increase in mental health blogging by young people, the open sharing of emotions and discussions on mental health issues, and how all of this is actively helping individuals across the country.
