Mental Health Awareness – a case study
Worldwide the issue of mental health has become more relevant to many peoples lives than ever before seemingly.
An issue that in the past was swept under the carpet so to speak, whispered about. Nowadays it is great to know that the question of mental health is not being ignored by our societies at large and greater effforts than ever before are being made to combat it and help people to deal with it.
I have worked online With Johnny Hunt who is passionate about mental health and increasing awareness.
Apart from working his day job, Johnny has a huge online community on Twitter with over 29,900 followers.
Johnny does all that he can on Twitter to raise awareness about mental health awareness.
I have worked with Johnny before but some months ago he was intent upon doing a walk to raise mental health awareness before a soccer game between Reading and Aston Villa in the UK and I persuaded him to use a short social media video to promote the walk. He agreed with me that a video would stand out better than simple text feeds on Twitter so I created 2 simple short videos as illustrated below.
