It's a campaign designed to shed light on a dark issue. A group of West Michigan college students are hoping to save lives by reaching teens and young adults battling depression with the help of positive messages and social media.
Four friends gathered in Caila Ferro's kitchen around a computer. On the screen was the Twitter page they created. Their handle is @Reasons2B_happy. They sat around and came up with positive messages to post, such as, "I may only be one person but I can be one person who makes a difference."
Another post said, "Get rid of negativity, surround yourself with positive people who respect you."
Caila Ferro says she was inspired by all the people who were stressed about school, an awful economy, and soldiers returning from war with post traumatic stress disorder.
So she called her friends and started to spread positive messages using the internet.
Ferro said, "On our Twitter and Facebook we post inspirational quotes and facts about depression and suicide to raise awareness."
They plan to post videos and hope others will follow their lead and post comments and videos of their own.
You can find out more by visting their Facebook and Twitter accounts. Search for "@Reasons2B_Happy" at either Facebook or Twitter to get involved.
