Mental health advocacy is a big topic. In this blog, we’re going to go over some of the ways that you can advocate for mental health topics. At Avalon Malibu, we’re big believers in the importance of advocacy work. Let’s go over some ways that you can begin advocating for mental health causes and using your voice in a positive way.
Mental Health Advocacy
Our Avalon Malibu team understands that it can sometimes be overwhelming to think about mental health advocacy. Below are some strategies you can consider if you’re wanting to start doing advocacy work. Don’t hesitate to take the following strategies and modify them based on what makes sense for you.
It’s important to take advantage of the tools that are available to you. Social media is a powerful tool. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful advocacy tools that exists in today’s world. Using social media to share about mental health topics can be a great way to reach a larger audience and use your voice in a positive way.
Providing educational content on social media is a great way to make sure that more people are learning about mental health and how complicated it can be. Consider making a plan for how you can use social media to advocate for mental health topics and share about causes that are personally important to you.
Another thing that you can consider sharing on social media is your own personal mental health story.
Sharing your own story is one of the most impactful things you can do. With that being said, you should only share the information that you feel comfortable with.
If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your mental health story, then you should wait to see if you feel comfortable in the future. You don’t ever need to share information that you don’t feel comfortable with, so give yourself some time if you don’t currently feel ready.
