How Drawings on Social Media are Changing Perceptions
“Over and over people who have mental illness email me saying, ‘When I share this with people I’m telling them this is how you can help me. It gives them another tool which can get them the support they need. Social media can play an important role in helping change the conversation.”
“It’s allowing us to tell and create our own stories about what mental illnesses feel like and how we need support. We don’t see accurate representations of mental illness in TV shows and movies all the time,” explains the artist.
