The digital world can be pretty darn handy when it comes to offering us health-related apps and introducing us to online mental health advocates, but now there鈥檚 another way to celebrate the good days and acknowledge the bad, all with a simple tweet. Find out why so many people are now #TalkingAboutIt, and how it can help those struggling and/or succeeding with their mental health.

Started by B+C contributor Sammy Nickalls, the intention of #TalkingAboutIt is just that: to encourage people to talk about their mental health issues. It all started when Sammy tweeted, 鈥淚f you feel comfortable, talk about your mental health the same way you鈥檇 talk about your physical health. Joke, share, be raw and open.鈥 Adding, 鈥淲hen it comes to mental health 鈥 and many other issues, really 鈥 the only way to end the stigma is to keep the conversation going.鈥

From there the hashtag was sparked. 鈥淚n fact, if you want to join me,鈥 Sammy continued, 鈥淚鈥檓 going to make more of an effort to talk about my mental health with the hashtag #TalkingAboutIt鈥

And people are definitely talking. It may not be easy, but it can be so crucial.

Some folks are being open about their struggles鈥

Others are sympathizing and empathizing鈥

And still others are offering support鈥

Thank you for #TalkingAboutIt! We totally support you and are sending you all strength and support!
