Kim Kardashian is the undisputed(?) queen of social media, naked selfies, and spinning-sextapes-into-goldmines, but now she’s using her power – and her bazillions of social media followers – to bring a little positive change into the world. (Did I wake up in an alternate reality?) According to Fish Wrapper, “Kim’s teamed up with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a documentary called ‘#RedFlag,’ which highlights the correlation between depression and social media today.”
Kim will serve as executive producer on the new show and says, “I am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends that are loving and nurturing, but not everyone has that kind of support. Twenty-five percent of adults in America will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime, and many of them turn to social media to vent their depression, loneliness and isolation.”

Mental health has been a growing issue circling around the Kardashian Klan for some time now, specifically when it comes to the mental and emotional state of Kim’s brother, Rob Kardashian, who recently posted some questionable and aggressive photos/comments targeting Kim on Instagram.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “The documentary shines a light on the stories of two young people suffering from mental illness, as both used social media to voice their pain.” Since May is Mental Health Awareness month, #RedFlag will debut Tuesday, May 5 at 9 p.m. ET on HLN, followed by a live aftershow with Dr. Drew airing from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
