This past week has been a long one for me. I can’t say it’s been my best week, and I know it isn’t the worst, but it’s been far from ideal. Luckily, it’s also BuzzFeed’s Mental Health Week. I love BuzzFeed. I think the stupid quizzes and taste test videos are sometimes the highlight of my day. This week, BuzzFeed took a more serious look at the realities of mental illness and mental health issues.
Visit BuzzFeed’s Mental Health Week to see their entire spread. To make it easier, I’ve compiled a list of some of the best ones I’ve seen this week. Some are funny, some may make you want to cry a little bit, but every single one is honest. If you have some time, I strongly encourage you to take a look at a few posts.
What you can say/do:
“Just Get Better” #no #dontdothis

Tips and Tricks:
This is by no means a complete list of what BuzzFeed has to offer this week. Their spread is impressive, with over 100 posts and 30 videos. Some discuss suicide, while others look at pop culture and how it can help. Try navigating a day with depression through their website, or watch one of the movies that have helped people cope. Mental health is something we all need to take care of, not just those of us with diagnosed illnesses.
Keep Surviving by Living.
