These simple badges are helping social media users talk about mental illness


People living with mental illness and other invisible conditions are fighting stigma head-on, thanks to a new social media campaign.

A collection of simple online badges, created by 28-year-old mental health advocate Kat Selwyn Layton from North Carolina, features declarative statements about mental health on colorful backgrounds. Called #EndTheStigma, the campaign lets users post the badges to their accounts, talk about living with invisible illnesses, conditions or disorders, and show others that they aren’t alone.
