Supportive and kind media is more important now than ever
Happiful Magazine launched on Monday 20 March 2017, the International Day of Happiness, to further conversations around mental health and illness, help eradicate associated stigma and discrimination, and to provide a supportive, kind community and publication for our readers.
“We personally know all too well the positive – and negative – role the media can play in people’s perception of their own and others’ mental health,” Editor Rebecca Thair shared this morning.
“After three years of Happiful Magazine’s existence, we’re more committed than ever to helping our readers get the support they might need and to sharing personal stories and experiences that help others.”
Happiful operates with kindness at the forefront of mind, and this is important, now more than ever, in these uncertain times
“Happiful operates with kindness at the forefront of mind and this is important, now more than ever, in these uncertain times. We need to come together to lift others, rather than tearing individuals down or scaring readers with sensationalism.
“A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to Happiful over the past three years, and to our readers and followers. It seems strange under current circumstances to be celebrating but we’re grateful to be three years old today and look forward to supporting our readers in the weeks, months and years to come.”
I’m just about to share this months issue of @happifulhq with staff as always. It’s so important to try and balance the less positive news & advice that we are being given with a bit of positivity and escapism….#selfcare #wellbeing #humanspirit #TuesdayMotivation #PositiveVibes https://t.co/aXrq8chDgg
