Despite the prevalence of mental health issues among college students, Anusha Jain ’17 said she never saw any trace of it on social media. In response, she launched a social media campaign last week called #iamnotperfect to encourage people to look beyond the facade people display online.
#iamnotperfect encourages people to post pictures that accurately portray themselves, along with stories of personal struggle. Through the campaign, Jain also encourages people to tag three of their “seemingly-perfect friends” to take up the challenge of sharing their stories.
Jain said she believes we need to look at social media to solve the problem of mental health.
