PROGRAMS

Instagram is committed to fostering communities of support on the platform. These communities bring people together from all over the world, allowing them to connect and share their experiences. Programs like #KindComments, #HereForYou, #PerfectlyMe, Pride #RoleModels and #CaptureConfidence celebrate the support networks that are growing on Instagram.

#GRAMFAM #GRAMFAM: SERIES OF INSTAZINES AIMED AT YOUNG PEOPLE We’ve worked with UK mental health charities CALM and The Mix to kick off a series of Instazines focused on supporting teens through key moments of stress. The first zine, coincided with exam results and featured a host of content created by teen influencers and celebs including Love Island’s Dr Alex, The Vamps guitarist James Mcvey and Reggie Yates. From advice on dealing with stress, tips on what to do if it goes wrong, playlists for relaxation and much more – the zine is a place for young people to go on Instagram to get involved with the conversation. The zines will continue to launch around moments of stress for teens – watch out for the freshers Week zine coming soon!
