Celutions’ Instagram reels have received over 500,000 views.
Celine Erorh is a young mental health activist from London and she is the founder of Celutions UK. It is a black-owned social enterprise that teaches young adults how to take care of their mental health through workshops, events, and social media.
For the first time since its launch in 2018, the Celutions page has received over 500,000 views. Social media can be bad for your mental health, but here is someone using their platform to improve your mental health.
Celutions Instagram reels share self-care tips and encourage others to talk about mental health, allowing their users to live a healthy lifestyle. The taboo surrounding mental health is gradually breaking, with more people feeling able to speak about their struggles without shame or embarrassment.
Peter Livingstone, from Handsworth Medical Practice, says “It is nice to see awareness being promoted, it brings out a positive aspect of social media that is not always seen.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives for more than a year, disrupting plans, affecting livelihoods, and bringing feelings of grief, anxiety, and fear.
In 2016, a survey carried out by Mind Charity Organization shows that 7.8% in 100 people in the UK surveyed that they were suffering from anxiety and depression.
21-year-old Isabelle Ohaga from Kenya says, “I enjoy watching Celutions posts as they have somewhat helped me break out of my depression. Their page is the main reason I choose to work on myself daily because they constantly educate us. I’ve made it a habit to read the positive affirmations first thing in the morning. And their Instagram reels are out of the ordinary, which makes them interesting to follow.”
“Seeing how quickly our community continues to grow – knowing that you are changing lives is amazing and seeing and hearing people learn how to look after their own mental health has to be the most enjoyable. When people realise that actually, something can be done, I think I enjoy that the most,” says Celine.
