You are not alone.
World Mental Health Day took place on October 10th 2016 and, as expected, YouTubers were out in force offering support for fans and fellow creators alike. As well as encouraging people to open up and talk about their mental health, YouTubers also used World Mental Health Day to share their own experiences of living with everything from anxiety to depression and how they've come to accept themselves and come to terms with their own health issues.
Overall, we found the day ultimately inspiring and truely believe that YouTubers are helping support a world where mental health is spoken about in the same way as physical health.
Here are some of the most inspiring tweets of the day. If you're suffering, please reach out and speak to someone.

#WorldMentalHealthDay It's ok to not be ok, to reach out for help. You might need medication and that's ok, too. Let's stop stigmatising.— Amena (@amenaofficial) October 10, 2016
