With so many things migrating into the virtual world, it is only necessary to address important issues in the society in the same platform to aid in the delivery of services to millions of people by just one click. In recent years the issue of mental health has been pushed out if the darkness with more and more people stepping out to accept and address this menace. Mental health has been one of the things associated with shame, embarrassment and most often than not hidden out of the societal eye did to ignorance and lack of the resources to curb it. Most of the time, people were not even aware they were suffering from mental health until the age of social media came. Now all one has to do is read a pop-up advert or a “how do you know you have mental illnesses” video or article to learn that you have mental health issues. It is true that most of this articles, blogs and vlogs are composed by people with close to no knowledge about the conditions and therefore not be used in medical evaluations or taken too seriously unless they are managed and developed by medical professionals like Talkspace.
