Having reached more than 40m 18 to 34 year-olds in the UK alone since 2016, LADbible’s award-winning UOKM8? mental health campaign returns on World Mental Health Day (Thursday 10th October) with “From My Experience” a new five-part series.
In each episode, two people living with the same mental health condition are asked to talk about their experiences related to everyday life, their relationships and work. The series focuses on bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, OCD and eating disorders.
We intend to inform and change attitudes around these mental health conditions – educating the LADbible audience in a way that’s easy to understand and empathise with, shift views and shatter misconceptions.
Look out for the following episodes across our LADbible.com site and social channels, and let’s talk mental health.
