Society today has adapted to new ways of communicating. We think nothing of texting, live video chats and use apps and social media channels to enhance our lifestyle choices. Technology has really taken the world by storm.
Alongside this rapid change, we have become more ‘invisible’ to each other as we sit behind screens and apparatus to communicate with the world around us. This means that no matter your gender, ability, disability or sexual orientation all that’s seen or heard through social media or other channels are your views and opinions and images that you wish to share.
Organisations are building internal networks so that disclosure of mental health issues, health related conditions and disabilities have a voice, where stories are shared and things learnt along the way, can be adhered to.
