Mental illness is not as uncommon as you might think. Recent data shows that nearly 25% of adults in the US are affected by mental health-related problems. This type of a problem was also one of the main driving forces for creating ‘Psychology Posts’. The founder told Bored Panda: “My reason for starting a psychology-related account on Instagram was a combination of personal mental health issues and an overall interest in psychology.”

“I got tinnitus at 18 years old. For those who don’t know what tinnitus is, it’s a constant ringing or buzzing sound in your ear that’s always there. The first three months after I got tinnitus, I felt like I just couldn’t rest, concentrate, or do anything but focus on the constant ringing sound in my ear. This led me to quite a dark place in my head. I wasn’t happy at all and I was struggling with the acceptance of my tinnitus at this young age.”

“This got me interested in learning how the brain works and in understanding why I was feeling the way I did. I started reading research articles and became fascinated by psychological research, and felt like more people needed to see this information.”

“When I was 19 years old, I decided to start posting these research findings on Instagram in a way that was short and easy to understand,” they added. Fast forward four years and now the account ‘Psychology Posts’ is one of the largest psychology communities online.

‘Psychology Posts’ covers a variety of topics. The informative uploads not only reveal signs of certain disorders, but also provide valuable tips and surprising facts. This way, the page brings attention to the many faces of mental health struggles.

The founder of the Instagram account said: “Raising awareness reduces the stigma around mental health and makes more people comfortable about opening up, and also encourages people to seek help if they feel like they need it. Whether this is with a friend, someone they trust, or a therapist. Opening up and talking about how you’re feeling is so important, and raising awareness stimulates this.” 

“Raising awareness about mental health is more important than ever because of the mental health crisis we’re currently in. More people than ever are struggling with depression and anxiety, which is why I’ve recently co-founded Neurify, where we teach people to mentally thrive in our modern world,” they added.
