October 4th is the start of Mental Health awareness week. Most of us know someone who struggles with MI. Whether it's anxiety, depression or thoughts of suicide, it all falls under the umbrella of MI. What we need to do is support them and be non judgemental. You don't know what is going on inside someone's head. Be kind.
Several years back, I created a series of cracked teacups to give credence to people suffering from mental illness. I exhibited the works at Emerge Gallery, in Woodstock, NY. I also have pieces on permanent display in several MI facilities across the USA.
Let's bring change to mind and how we look at mental illness around the world.
This one is titled Black Inside from the series, High Anxiety Tea Party. See the rest of the series on Saatchi Website:
