Netflix and Instagram have partnered to create a live Q&A series called “Wanna Talk About It,” featuring young Netflix stars discussing how to cope during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Instagram series, which starts April 9 at 4 p.m.PST/7 p.m. EST live from @netflix, will feature stars of some of Netflix’s popular young adult content “talking about taking care of yourself during a global pandemic,” according to a Netflix release.
The series will run every Thursday through May 14.
Participating stars, including Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), Joey King (The Kissing Booth), Ross Butler (“13 Reasons Why”), Caleb McLaughlin (“Stranger Things”), Lana Condor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), Jerry Harris (“Cheer”), and Alisha Boe (“13 Reasons Why”), will go live from @netflix on Instagram to talk with mental health experts from organizations including National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Mental Health America, The Trevor Project, Crisis Text Line and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The young stars will discuss the questions and challenges young people are facing during the COVID-19 global pandemic, covering topics such as: what helps if you’re having trouble sleeping? how do you stay connected during social distancing? how do we manage anxiety? and what self-care means.
The first Instagram Live will launch on @netflix with Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) in conversation with Dr. Ken Duckworth, Chief Medical Officer at the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) on self-care.
