Netflix and Instagram Partner For "Wanna Talk About It" Live Q&A Sessions

Two of the biggest digital brands in the world have partnered to offer a new series discussing tips on taking care of yourself during a global pandemic and will feature stars of some of Netflix’s popular content.

The Instagram series will start Thursday, April 9 on Netflix’s Instagram page at 4:00pm ET and run every Thursday through May 14. 

Stars of the series will include Ross Butler from 13 Reasons Why, Caleb McLaughlin from Stranger Things and Lana Condor from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Each will go live on Instagram to talk with trusted mental health experts from organisations including National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Mental Health America, The Trevor Project, Crisis Text Line and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

They’ll discuss the questions and challenges young people are facing during the COVID-19 global pandemic and talk through topics like: what helps if you’re having trouble sleeping? how do you stay connected during social distancing?, how do we manage anxiety? and what self-care actually means. 

The first IG Live will launch with Noah Centineo in conversation with Dr. Ken Duckworth, Chief Medical Officer at NAMI on self-care.
