What We’re Going to Talk About • What is Social Media? • Personal - using social media to maintain or reconnect with my friends, family and acquaintances. • Support - using social media to find others with a common experience or situation to find support and share experiences. • Advocacy - using social media to create your own community to advocate change - stigma, raise money, provide support to others.

  10. 10. “If we talk about the absurdity of mental illness stigma it will begin to disappear. If we can share the common story of how mental illness affects our lives, we will see it for what it is — a variation of the human condition. To harbour mental illness stigma is to harbour a stigma against humanity.” – Michael Schratter – www.ridedonthide.com
