The world (and lives of others) is literally at our fingertips. For better or for worse, our networks “highlight reel” is splashed in front of us daily through Instagram, Facebook or any other social platform we frequent, serving as a constant reminder of what others have and forcing us to question what we don’t. Join us for a conversation with founder of Sad Girls Club, Elyse Fox, founder of Half the Story, Larissa May and founder of The Literary Social, Minaa B about the impacts of social media on our mental health, and how we can learn to break away from the mental self-criticism when scrolling and liking.
Elyse Fox is a filmmaker, activist and tastemaker living in New York City and London. Elyse has collaborated with Olay Beauty, Harvard University, Instagram, Nike, and Vogue Magazine, to name a few.
In December 2016 Elyse released a documentary film about her ride through depression named Conversations with Friends. After its debut Elyse received hundreds of inquiries and requests from young women around the world seeking guidance and support with their mental health journey. In January, 2017 Elyse created Sad Girls Club; a stigma-free online and IRL community created for millennials and Gen. Z to discuss mental health openly.
Today Sad Girls Club has fans in over 40 countries and hosts events nationally. Elyse continues to spread awareness through curriculum consulting, journalism, speaking engagements and more.
