#OKAYMOVEMENT

“How are you?” – This has turned into a way to just get a conversation started. The answer is easy, automatic really – “good”, “fine”, “okay.” But how are you?

Really. How are you?

We want to create a safe space to share stories, seek help, and support others going through the same troubles. #OkayMovement shows people experiencing mental health issues that they are not alone.

Your stories are important and there is hope.
