Kim Kardashian executive produces mental illness documentary

Kanye West's wife Kim Kardashian can add documentarian to her resume after executive producing a feature about mental illness.

#RedFlag follows two young people suffering from mental illness and focuses on how social media can be used to raise awareness and assist young adults with disabilities.


Kardashian 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 per cent 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."


The documentary will air in May (15) on the HLN network.
