Top 7 Netflix series to improve your know-how in mental health

VOS team is a group of diverse people with different passions, goals, views on life, and opinions.

What unites us is a desire to become better versions of ourselves and help others to achieve the same.

Mental health is not a trend, it’s a serious topic that is not always mentioned in the media, discussed at work, or at school. Fortunately, there are more people who start the conversation and we want to support and encourage it by sharing our findings on the topic.
