On Mental Health Day on Saturday, Instagram launched a ‘The Real Talk’ content series in partnership with the Under25 community and The Artidote.

It’s a three-part video series, hosted by the founder of The Artidote, Jovanny Ferreyra, a global mental health advocate.

“While mental health tools, resources and community guidelines are powerful and necessary components of making the social media experience a positive one, the majority of interaction still happens between members of a community,”

Mohan said.

“Let’s be aware of our own emotions, and acknowledge the impact of this situation on our lives. Reach out for help, without hesitation and any inhibition,” Mohan added. (IANS)
