Kim Kardashian produces documentary for mental health

KIM Kardashian has worked as executive producer on a new documentary, which examines how social media can help identify people with mental health problems.

The film, called #RedFlag, was Kardashian's brainchild. It's said that she wants to help educate the public about the prevalence of mental illness.

"I am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends that are loving and nurturing, but not everyone has that kind of support," Kardashian said.

"Twenty five percent of adults in America will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime, and many of them turn to social media to vent their depression, loneliness, and isolation."

#RedFlag will be followed up by a debrief programme, in which Dr Drew Pinsky will offer his expertise.

Recently, Kardashian has worked to raise awareness of the Armenian genocide. She visited Yerevan with her family to explore her Armenian heritage and raise awareness of the 1.5 million people who were murdered by the Ottoman Turks.
