‘Let’s walk about it’ is the name of my project, in which I try to stimulate people from 18-25 years old to talk about their mental health during walking together. The organized walk brings you past illuminated questions that guide your conversation to alternately light-hearted and heavier topics related to mental health. The questions help people to talk about their problems, to feel supported, and to realize that they are not the only one struggling. Additionally, the experience brings feelings of hope and amusement. Altogether, the journey should feel like skiing down a ramp, while being encouraged by your friends.
