The Basics of Yopp
New to Yopp? You’ve come to the right place!
I’m here to introduce you to the many important aspects of Yopp and offer some suggestions of articles to read that accurately represent our goals and specialties.
The majority of Yopp’s content is written by creator and editor Kella Hanna-Wayne whose life experiences managing multiple illnesses, chronic pain, and an invisible disability, brings new depth to these widely misunderstood topics.
Guest writers are key component to Yopp’s work. No single person can express the experience of every form of marginalization, which is why you’ll find articles from people with a wide variety of backgrounds on Yopp.
Yopp Academy articles are organized by level of difficulty like classes in a university: Level 100 is the most basic, which you will need to learn in order to proceed to Level 200 etc.
A special thing that you will find on Yopp on a regular basis is compilations of useful resources for specific topics. In this case, guest writer Lucy Merriman wrote an amazing 5-part series entitled, How to Lend a Hand in a Mental Health Crisis, which is filled with valuable tools, advice, and specific external resources to utilize.
Yopp is unusual in that we currently don’t have a comment section and this article dictates why, though this might change in the future. You can always contact us with any questions or feedback you might have.
