Royaume-Uni : #timetotalk Is social media helping people talk about mental health?

le 12 février 2015

[The Guardian] On Time to Talk day, when everyone is encouraged to take five minutes to talk about mental health, we ask whether the likes of YouTube and Tumblr are helping or hindering conversations about mental illness

More people than ever before are talking about mental health online.

Whether through blogs, videos or tweets, candid conversations about mental illness can be found across the spectrum of social networks we interact with on day-to-day basis. According to a survey by Time to Change, released for Time to Talk Day, 47% of people aged 21 and under said they find it easiest to talk about their mental health problems online (compared with 49% who said face to face and 4% who said over the phone).
