Happiful Magazine: Supportive and kind media is more important now than ever

Happiful magazine was launched on Monday 20th March 2017, the International Day of Happiness, with the intent to further conversations around mental health and illness, and to help eradicate associated stigma and discrimination, while ensuring everyone has access to the information and support they might need at any stage in their life.

Speaking ahead of the magazine’s third anniversary, Editor Rebecca Thair said: “We personally know all too well the positive – and negative – role the media can play in people’s perception of their own, and others’ mental health.

“After three years of Happiful Magazine’s existence, we’re more committed than ever to helping our readers get the support they might need and to sharing personal stories about living with and accepting mental health and illness.

“Happiful operates with kindness at the forefront of mind, and this is important, more now than ever, in these uncertain times. We need to come together to lift others, rather than tearing individual’s down, or scaring readers with sensationalism.

“Happiful intends to continue to play a major part in the supportive and kinder media movement.”
