A current TikTok craze that has gained popularity is called The Bracelet Project. We examine the trend’s significance and the colours that go along with it.
The newest challenges, trends, and popular videos may be found on TikTok. Often, it is the first social media network where a piece of material begins to trend before it spreads widely on other platforms.
What precisely is the Bracelet Project, which has received much appreciation from users on TikTok? What you should know is as follows.
What is the Bracelet Project on TikTok?
The Bracelet Project on TikTok is a movement that tries to increase awareness of mental health concerns and spark a discussion about them online.
The movement was started to support those dealing with specific disorders and give them a sense of solidarity.
Since searches for The Bracelet Initiative point to older versions of Wattpad and Tumblr, it seems clear that the project was not started on TikTok.
The October 10th observance of World Mental Health Day may have sparked interest in the topic of mental health treatment.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognises international day, which promotes awareness of issues that continue to carry a stigma in some nations.
Similar goals can be seen in The Bracelet Project, where participants wear bracelets made of colourful strings, each of which stands for a different mental health condition.
Meaning of Colours
In the Bracelet Project, each hue stands for a specific mental illness or ailment that people have experienced.
Bulimia sufferers are represented by the purple string, while blue denotes depression, green denotes fasting, red denotes anorexia, and teal denotes anxiety or panic disorder.
Pink denotes EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise defined), black or orange denotes self-harm, and yellow denotes suicidal thoughts.
The colours silver and gold stand for schizophrenia, bipolar disease, and other mood disorders, respectively.
White beads can be added to specific strands for those who have recovered or are in the process of recovering.
