Query: Hi, I’m looking for mental health experts familiar with the needs of older adults who can tell me which 4-6 daily affirmations are best for retirees and why. These should specifically address concerns that you think retirees face–for instance, you might share a phrase that re-affirms a sense of purpose.

Requirements: Please also share your full name, title, and a link to your professional site so I can credit your quotes. Thanks!

Summary: Mental-health content on social media

  • Deadline: 12:00 PM EST – 3 August

Query: For a large global pub, I need to talk to mental-health experts (therapists, psychologists, etc) who can dispense tips on how to be a savvy consumer of mental-health content online. We know this type of content is trending on TikTok and Instagram, and people are using it to diagnose themselves, maybe to replace therapy, maybe to trust less-than-credible sources, and to pick up therapy speak they then use in their personal lives. I’d like to talk to folks in-depth about how to be smart about this content, and how to (and not to) apply it in our own lives. For example: Let’s say someone picks up some “therapy speak” on TikTok. What’s the right way to treat it/to proceed with using these phrases in your own life? Etc.

Requirements: Please send a few initial thoughts/tips via email, and then I’ll reach out to schedule a phone interview. Thanks!
