Since its inception in 2013, social media has been a central part of the Never Alone business. The Facebook page quickly became a meeting place and a forum for both those affected and their loved ones.
The Never Alone Facebook page
At the time of writing, the Facebook page Never Alone has over 160,000 followers. There, people who suffer from mental illness and relatives meet on a daily basis. Experiences are shared to help each other move forward and provide support to others who are in a similar situation. When Charlie Eriksson started sharing his texts on the website, it was precisely the recognition that made the texts a great help for many people.
If you want to help us spread our important words, it’s through Facebook that we want to see your commitment. It makes a difference.
The video “Nu bryter vi tystnaden” (“Now we break the silence”) which was published on the Facebook page at the end of 2017 has over 4.5 million views. It’s a short informational film that was made together with some of the ambassadors for Never Alone.
