The #WhatYouDontSee Hashtag Is Generating Real Talk About Depression


A major reason so much stigma surrounds mental health is that you can’t “see” depression, anxiety, or any other mental illnesses the way you can “see” when someone has a cast on their arm. Although we still have a long way to go, social media has proved to be an awesome platform for people to speak out against this stigma and talk about what it’s really like to have a mental illness. That’s why Blurt, a depression awareness organization, took to Twitter and asked people to share their own experiences with depression using #WhatYouDontSee.
