Today on Brainwaves, we chat about 'Therapised Content' on social media with Ash King, a registered psychologist, writer/designer and founder of Heavy Mental — providing mental wellbeing workshops and courses.
Ash talks about the pro’s and con’s to getting mental health advice from social media, how to navigate social media safely and how it can break down barriers that still exist for a lot of people.
Ash is a resident psychologist at Support Act and undertaking a Phd with the Cyberpsychology Research Group at The University of Sydney (exploring social media and identity).
Over the past few years, Ash has facilitated workplace well-being workshops for brands/organisations including Amazon, Unified Music and Pinterest. In addition, she has contributed to publications including Vogue AU, The Guardian and News.com.au; as well as appeared as a mental health expert on Triple J's Hack.
