In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, our team at Goaldy is hosting discussions regarding mental health and social media usage. What better way to kick off this discussion than by bringing in an expert on the topic! For our first conversation, we are honored to be joined by Kay Blankenship, BA, MPC, LCPC, NCC, CCMHC, Behavioral Health Clinical Counselor.
Kay Blankenship is a licensed clinical professional counselor. She has worked in the field of mental health and has taught in higher education for over twenty years. Kay has an extensive background in youth mental health and helped design and implement a community wide suicide prevention screening program for schools in Wisconsin. She is certified as a QPR (suicide prevention) gatekeeper trainer and also services as a suicide prevention consultant for schools and communities. Kay is currently the behavioral health clinical counselor for the Hult Center for Healthy Living’s Youth Mental Health Matters educational program.
As a social media agency, we know it is critical to have these conversations now more than ever. This is why we are delighted to be joined by Kay to talk about the positives and negatives of social media on our mental health and insight into how it affects us in ways we may not realize.
After watching the video, please reach out with any further questions regarding social media and mental health as this is a discussion we will continue having. And if you have any tips that you use for your own social media usage, we would love to hear them! Drop us a comment or reach out to us on any of our socials. ⬇️
