Many people don’t know that one of the most used social media platforms, Instagram has a secret feature for its users suffering from depression. This feature can be a game-changer for mental health.
If an Instagram user searches for the #depression and clicks on the first hashtag. It takes you to the page where you are asked if you are going through something or would like to get support as these hashtags can be indicators for some people’s mental health condition.
If you click on Get Support it advances you to three options that include ‘Talk to a friend’, ‘Talk to a helpline volunteer’ and lastly ‘Find ways to help yourself’. A person suffering can choose any options per their needs and comfort.
All these three options are very carefully picked out with helpful suggestions afterward. The best feature is that by clicking on talk to a helpline or volunteer it has actually listed numbers of facilities that cater such issues.
In times of coronavirus pandemic everybody is suffering from a low phase. Such kind acts do make a good impact on society.
