That can sort of get into into dams. That sort of stuff have you found it?

You get a lot of people that will dm you and say, Oh, I'm ready struggling with my mental health and sometimes it's difficult because if you integrate place with your mental health, it's very difficult to help others and you can feel of responsibility when you have a load of twelve, thirteen, fourteen year olds mass you saying that they're ready L. and they need a little help and then getting it so it can be a lot to take but generally. I don't, mind if. People make. Negative commands all criticize me talking about it because I personally don't see a problem was talking about it. I'm very careful about what I say I didn't give people especially in regards to Anorexia or self. self-harm a lot of people when they talk about it can accidentally give tips. I'm very careful with that so I have. I'm like a Schule that what I'm saying is not going to negatively impact people. Some people think on the Internet you'RE GONNA end up offending someone. Yeah. Couse. Do you have sort of boundaries in place in terms of what should go online and instead of what you'd have? Generally, I try not to follow too many people with mental health issues I mean I. Obviously I follow a lot like to have variety or I think you can sometimes become too consumed and people can post a lot of. Quite upsetting sometimes because people can pass like I'm feeding ready down. Awful.

Got It to chat to be about mental health stuff generally, and I'm still getting to grips with TIKTOK. What was the community like on Tiktok in terms of mental health checks on a straight feels fairly supportive of. TIKTOK is very supportive on it's mostly. So of Gen, Z. Kids. And I think as a whole always really sports each other the thing about Tiktok that's quite different to a lot of other platforms is that every time you release a video, it can be seen by a whole new audience of people. If it gets picked up by the Algorithm, it will get to it can go out to hundreds and thousands of people. and so you're always interacting with a new audience. From tiktok in. Particular I've never had many negative comments to be honest. They've always been really quite leaned.
