Local IG accounts to follow for a positivity fix

Jan 15, 2022 0 comments



We’ve seen Instagram change from being a social media app where you can post whatever picture or video to being a platform where people can sell things and showcase their talent. It has also become the platform of many who have advocacies they’re fighting for, such as mental health. 


With Instagram relying heavily on photos and videos to catch (and keep) the attention of users, these features have become very useful for mental health advocates who want to share their stories and help those who are struggling with their mental health. 


Here are some examples of IG accounts with beautifully illustrated posts on mental health that you can check out:


Empath (@empath_ph )


Empath is a mental health service that advocates for mental healthcare access for all. Their IG account features an earthy color palette and covers a variety of mental health topics that are accompanied by cute illustrations that will definitely make you smile. 


Some of the mental health topics that their artsy posts cover include how to be a genuine mental health ally, adult ADHD, and signs that a person is good for your mental health. 


Metroscene Mag (@metroscenemag)


Aside from being a destination of stories from the scenes of entertainment, lifestyle, politics, and current issues, Metroscene Mag's Instagram account is also filled with positive and insightful quotes to remind you to stay present at the moment and keep a positive mindset.
If you're all about short inspirational quotes, you'll want to add Metroscene Mag to your feed; it features an endless array of perfect, bold posts that fit every feeling.



HimuTalk Mental Health Support (@himutalk )


Another mental health support IG account that has beautifully illustrated posts is HimuTalk. HimuTalk’s name is a play on the Filipino word “himutok,” which is the word used to describe an outcry of deep sorrow or distress. 


If you’re a fan of comic strips, especially those that focus on mental health issues and topics, HimuTalk’s IG is one you should definitely take the time to browse. The IG account also features posts that are filled with advice, real talk, and important reminders about mental health. 


Oasis Selfcare Oil (@oasis.selfcareph


Oasis Selfcare Oil describes itself as your form of escape on Instagram when you’re feeling overwhelmed. It’s hard not to linger on the account and keep scrolling, to be honest, because their posts will surely appeal to anyone who likes drawings and illustrations. 


These drawings and illustrations are often accompanied by practical and helpful reminders about mental health. They are typically written in Filipino too, which will definitely appeal to the great Filipino audience on IG.
