At Madhappy, we’re on a mission to create conversation around mental health. The Local Optimist is here to make those conversations easier.
Opening up about our mental health has been dismissed as taboo for far too long. With TLO, we hope to break down those walls and create a safe space for discussion around the many different ways that we feel. From expert-vetted toolkits and guides to personal essays and interviews, we’re bringing important conversations about our wellbeing into the light and uplifting each other in the process.
What started as a personal journey for our founders has led to an incredible community built around optimism and openness. Our team of editors, writers and mental health professionals each has their own story that connects them closely to this work. Together we share in the belief that our minds deserve the same level of attention and care that we give our bodies. Our content is here to help everyone prioritize that care on a daily basis.
