About Mentalhealth – athon
Mentalhealth-athon is a mental health based readathon hosted by @beaut1fulchaos_ and co-hosted by @chaptercviii and @__rachael_marie. Each participant is shown a bingo board featuring 15 mental health prompts. The goal is to read and become aware of various different mental health illnesses by reading about characters with these illnesses.

Here is the mentalhealth – athon bingo board:
Note: I am a HSP (highly sensitive person) which means I can’t watch or read about violent or triggering events in films or books. Due to this, I have skipped 3 prompts, group book, eating disorder rep and PTSD rep.
