About A Portrait of a Teenager

This website raises awareness on the different hidden elements on Tumblr, and the way they impact today’s teenagers. Tumblr fosters a community of like-minded individuals, including their struggles with mental illness. These personal blogs become a living diary of their journey through mental illness, and the subsequent support they garner from within the community. The purpose of this organization is to bring attention to the negative influences of what I will call the “dark side” of Tumblr.
