I love Booktube. Watching youtube videos about books is one of the biggest reasons I got back into reading during college and I am forever grateful for every creator who has shared their thoughts, ideas, and creativity on booktube. There have been a number of booktubers recently who have spoken up about their own journeys with mental health in an attempt to be honest with viewers and break the stigma associated with mental illness. Today for Shattering Stigmas. I wanted to share a few of my favorite videos where these readers open up about mental illness. Be sure to stop by their channels and subscribe!
...and why aren’t authors writing characters dealing with mental health?
