I agree with Duca because many of these listicles often use common experiences to define mental health issues. Listicles cover very basic identity traits that everyone has; everyone will be sad or down at one point or another, but that doesnt mean you’re depressed. This is a common issue amongst society: many of us believe we have mental health issues, but in fact we don’t. Many of us are using these listicles instead of going to professionals to diagnose whether or not we have a mental health issue. This doesn’t allow mental health issues to get the proper attention they need. Listicles are only promoting this issue by spreading false information to the public.

1. Inverse outlining an essay to see connections within its many ideas. Re-read Adrian Chen’s “Don’t Be a Stranger” (pp. 61-66). Make a numbered list of notes describing the main idea in each of the essay’s 29 paragraphs. Each of your notes needn’t be longer than a phrase.
When finished, look over your list. What do you notice about the overall form of this essay? What is the main topic it seems to be about? Where and how is the main topic introduced? Where and how does the essay meander away from this main idea?
