Mental health and the fediverse

Mental health has hit the headlines more often since the Covid 19 pandemic hit the world People at home with little contact with other people.

Couple this with the impact of centralised social media services, giving people personalised content, which in some cases is causing more problems for people of all ages.

Shout Out

To this end, this article is more of a shout out to organisations who offer mental health services to set up on the fediverse. Services such as a Mastodon and Peertube could provide an excellent platform to share your message and connect.audience who may need help

As a user of decentralised social media I do find people who need help, you can tell by what they write, their tone that they need to perhaps talk to someone for advice.

This post also comes as a result of my own attempts to ask people on to the Fediverse. I have had conversations on Mastodon and there is support for this, but that is not enough. If we want something then it is up to people to be pro-active and act, rather than waiting for expecting someone else to do it.

So I am taking action and trying to do something about this.

Not Alone

Signing up to the fediverse is easy, however you are not alone, people can and will help you with this.
