Top 5 Twitter accounts to follow for mental health

 

By Sarah Robinson  |   May 9, 2014

Mental Health Week may be coming to a close across the country, but the conversation keeps flowing online (a concept we’re all-too-familiar and pleased with at The Social). Swinging by a centering yoga class, making time for meditation and keeping up to date on initiatives and opportunities to better your mental health should never be limited to a smattering of dates throughout the year. With that in mind, we reached out to members of the mental health community for recommendations on the best Twitter accounts to follow for mental health information, inspiration and more.
