About Content notes
In short: What are content notes and where can I find them?
On every project page you will find a content note in the upper right corner, marked with a purple heart 💜/the word Content Note. This content note describes in more detail which stressful topics might appear in this project. It should help you make a good decision about when, how, and if you want to watch the project.
In-depth: Why & how do we use content notes?
Through not-alright, we would like to offer new perspectives on mental health. From our point of view, this can be a valuable tool for affected people towards their own healing. At the same time, we are aware that our projects deal with difficult topics and can therefore be too stressful. In order to prevent further trauma from being caused as a result of being overwhelmed, we have decided to work with content warnings.
A content warning (also often called a trigger warning) gives affected people the opportunity to protect themselves or seek support before dealing with the issues in question. It effectively serves as an informed consent button for the content in question.
Some people find content notices patronising. Moreover, some artworks thrive on the fact that you don’t know exactly what they are about beforehand. Therefore, we leave it up to you to decide whether you want to look at the content notice beforehand.
You will find the content note in the upper right-hand corner of each project page. It is marked with a purple heart 💜/the word Content Note (see picture below). We try to make the content notes as comprehensive as possible.
When you click on the content note, you will get a general description based on an umbrella term such as depression.
