The Sad Collective, a mental health platform by the people for the people, is a community who firmly believes in the power of vulnerability. Not only do they strive to be a safe space for emotional expression — they hope to become a catalyst for conversation, with the goal of bringing mental health to the forefront of social consciousness.
