We explore the intersection between the internet and mental health. Writer/Director Dawn Garcia and tech insider Jake Palanker join us to discuss what social media companies are doing to steer troubled users towards help and how we can all actively curate healthier online communities.
From “Compassionate Search” to "Here for You,” recent tech company developments indicate an increased sense of responsibility for our online mental health. We are joined by writer, speaker, director and equality advocate Dawn Garcia for a discussion on the intersection of the Internet and mental health. Dawn is crowdsourcing a short film to help spread suicide risk awareness. She is joined by high tech insider Jake Palanker as we explore the role of social media companies in amplifying marginalized voices and promoting positive speech. How can we positively affect our online experiences? Can we customize our social media feeds? Should we respond to cruelty with kindness and how did Twitter facilitate an important dialogue between Weezy, Joe Biden and Cher!?
