Mortals is an instagram based project aimed at highlighting young people’s voices about mental health. This is done by giving them a creative plattform where they can share, open up, and communicate with each other.
The core concept is based around the idea that young people record themselves in short snippets where they talk openly and honestly about how they are feeling and what they are thinking in that moment. You follow three people over three months and then three new people replace them.
During this time other people will also make cameo appearances in the channel, and we publish animations, poetry, etc created by young people with thematic connections to these topics.
The purpose with Mortals is to show young people that it’s ok to be the way you are. You are not alone or a freak for feeling the way you do. We are a big group of people who are all dealing with difficult issues and from that we want to build a network and a community on the platform where people can support and help one another.
We just launched a new season, this time with Iggy, Kitok och Irene. This season also reflects our special intention to loosen up the stigma on mental unwellness among guys.
