The Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) Instagram page is about to be taken over!
For the week of July 23rd through July 27th, BEST teen volunteer, Erin Thompson, will take the reins as Instagram moderator, content creator and BEST ambassador on the BEST Instagram page.
Thompson, a Washington State high school student and artist, will be creating original works of art that will focus on self-care and self-care strategies. Her artwork will be posted each day on the BEST Instagram page during the scheduled week. BEST Instagram followers and supporters are welcomed and encouraged to stop by and give Erin a cyber hello and check out the artwork.
Speaking of artwork, Thompson has shared her artistic creations and message with BEST previously. Thompson’s past BEST projects include a special online original art installation about what family members and caregivers of brain injury survivors experience. Thompson had unique insight into these experiences as she is a family member of a brain injury survivor.
She also created an original art series of self-care tips for the holiday season for the BEST blog and social media.
Self-care practices have been a passion for Thompson for some time and she loves sharing what she has learned about taking care of oneself.
“Self-care helps you understand your mental health and what your body really needs,” says Thompson.
Thompson is looking forward to meeting BEST friends, fans and followers next week on Instagram. She’s a big fan herself of this particular social media platform.
“Out of all social media, it’s a more positive space,” shares Thompson.
