DAILY INSTAGRAM POSTS
MonuMental uses social media heavily as a tool to reach out to teenagers in the community, as social media, particularly Instagram, plays an influential role in many teenagers' lives. MonuMental creates Instagram posts multiple times a week, with content posted almost daily with a purpose. Examples include "Self Care Sundays" and "MonuMental Mondays", where we promote the betterment of mental health.
MonuMental has a wonderful blog present within the website that is updated weekly on Saturdays. The blog consists of articles created by our very own MonuMental members. Every article has an important message, depicting one's personal struggle with mental health through "Share Your Stories" or a general discussion of a mental health issue, such as depression.
MonuMental mainly utilizes Instagram and blog articles to spread mental health awareness, specifically to the teenage audience within Howard County. Developing articles and Instagram posts with MonuMental not only helps destigmatize mental illness, but these tasks also provide students with the opportunity to earn service hours. Service hours may be used to apply for scholarships and national honor societies.
