"Teens and young adults who suffer from mental illness can feel hopeless and alone. Many don't know what's wrong with them but feel like it's their fault. Those who understand what is happening fear they can't be helped. Because of the stigma attached to mental illness, it's often hard for those suffering and their families and friends to talk about what they're going through. But help is available, and it works."
The National Association of Broadcasters created OK2Talk, an online community for teens and young adults coping with mental health problems to encourage them to share their personal stories of recovery, tragedy, struggle or hope. Poetry, inspirational quotes, photos, videos, song lyrics and messages of support can be shared in this safe, moderated space.
