THE MENTAL HEALTH SERIES
‘Mental Health, Series 1-3’ (2014-17) explored the relationship to stigma surrounding mental illness, looking at stories of individuals with these experiences anonymised.
After the death of someone I knew suffering from mental illness it was important to draw attention to the divide in stances towards mental illness and how that creates setbacks, from those that are suffering and society as a whole.
I examined the past and present view of mental illness, explored the depiction of this in film and media too, closing the subject looking at famous icons that have had journeys with their mental health. My goal in this was to have the residual message which would better understand how similar we are as people.
