By aggregating posts on a single page, visitors can now view shared stories by category such as depression, anxiety or bipolar. Users can also interact with others by ‘liking’ posts, responding through social media, or following a user’s story, helping increase awareness for mental illness. Since the April 2016 launch, the site has already received 8,000 unique views out of 9,535 page views, with an average time of 3:33 on the page. The campaign received over 10,000 tweets in May alone. ‘We wanted to hear real people explain what mental illnesses are like in their own words, and have been thrilled with the initial response,’ said Danielle Fritze, Dir. of Public Education & Visual Communications for Mental Health America.
