How bad of an idea is this? - July 23rd 2013, 01:13 AM

Okay so I've been thinking about creating a youtube channel for a while. I wanna make videos relating to mental health. So I'd be talking about stuff like mental disorders, advice for family & friends, anger management, self esteem, assertiveness, coping strategies etc. Do you think people would actually watch/subscribe to that kind of thing? Be honest. Running a youtube channel is a lot of work and if people aren't even going to watch my videos it would be a colossal waste of time and energy. So whaddaya think?

If you can keep it up and running I think that there would be an audience for it, especially if you add in your own experiences, etc., to make it more personal. I know if you ran it I'd subscribe. Maybe you can even take suggestions from viewers as to what they want to see, like if they want a certain topic covered you can make a video or two on it.

I agree with Dez. If you make it personal more people will like it. I would definitely check out your videos, I think it all sounds interesting.

If you had people spread the word around I'm sure you would have tons of views.

I agree with the above, but I have to warn you that there will be MAJOR criticism because Youtube can become an open forum for anonymous bullies to say whatever they want and some people don't believe mental health problems exist or they are completely ignorant and instead of learning they will use it as an opportunity to jump on you.

I think it's a good idea, but be prepared that not everyone will.

I agree with them above, it is a lot of work, but there would be plenty of people that could watch you because they relate. There tends to be too many of those people who like to leave hate comments just because- they have nothing better to do.

If you think you can deal with that, I think you should definitely go for it. You will have to share with us so we can watch too! ^^

Thanks for the feedback! I think I'll go ahead with it but I'm starting university this year so I'll wait until I feel more comfortable with uni life before I start. Plus that gives me more time to brainstorm ideas and stuff! When I get started I'll have somewhere where people can ask questions or give suggestions for what they want to see. I think I can handle the hate so long as there are people who are benefiting from watching my videos. If it can help someone then it's worth it. So yeah, when I get started I'll let you guys know.
