Mental Health

Texting is a daily source of stress for 1/3 of people - are you one of them?

Activist Austin Guest uses his iPhone to communicate with other protest organizers using Celly, a mobile phone application that allows for group text message conversations, during a protest in New York May 1, 2012. Guest, a 31-year-old Harvard graduate, has been involved with Occupy Wall Street since the early days of the movement's encampment at Manhattan's Zuccotti Park. An online community organizer and an actor, Guest describes the movement against economic inequality as the best thing that has ever happened in his life. He has since quit his day job and moved out of his apartment to commit himself fully to Occupy. Picture taken May 1, 2012.
