This is the Sweet Reason Behind Tom Hardy’s Latest Selfie

More important is that he’s not alone.

Perhaps, you have noticed the important message behind Tom Hardy’s latest selfie. Or maybe not.  Supposing you did not give it attention, the Taboo star posted a photo of himself holding four fingers up,. Actually, Hardy was showing his support for the #1in4 campaign.

This campaign, the #1in4, is a mental health movement. It originates from the statistic that mental health will have an effect on one in four people in their lifetime. It is much the same as the Heads Together campaign, leaded by Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton.  The #1in4 campaign is looking forward to break the stigma around mental health and open a discussion in order to encourage people to talk about their mental health problems.

This movement is calling upon people to upload selfies of themselves holding four fingers up in order to raise awareness for the troubling statistic and break the stigma around the issue.

‘#1in4 of us will experience mental health issues. Let’s combat stigma together.’ BBC Three posted, uploading selfies of a series of celebrities holding four fingers up.

Beside Tom Hardy, Olivia Colman and David Tennant were one of the first who backed the campaign. Nevertheless support has come from all angles. Starting with everyone from Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel and Radio DJ Nick Grimshaw to comedian Russell Brand, everyone is taking selfie and encouraging fans to do the same, spreading the solidarity and shedding the stigma.
