Best of Our Blogs: January 25, 2019

Social media is a great place to connect, but because it’s rare for people to post their most difficult days, it can also make you feel bad about yourself and your life.

If you crave online connection, the good news is there are other ways to get it. Did you know that we have forums, and Facebook and Twitter pages?

There’s also a site called, “The Mighty.” To me, it’s like getting social media updates on everything related to chronic illness.

If you know of specific social media sites for those struggling with mental illness, leave your suggestion in the comments. Let’s help each other find positive ways to connect.
