May is Mental Health Month, and with advocates for mental health speaking up all over social media, we wanted to sift through the noise and highlight the top mental health influencers you should follow this month. These individuals come with strong credentials and share educational content and useful tips that anyone can beneficially incorporate into their lives. From psychoderms to trauma specialists, eating disorders, and imposter syndrome, these influencers provide an array of expertise in the field of mental health.
Social media can serve as a community for people experiencing similar emotions. It is helping break down the stigma of mental health, but keep in mind, it’s not a replacement for treatment. If you are struggling with your mental health, please take care of yourself and find a trusted professional.
