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.
