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.
