Your Brain With Mental Illness

This series is inspired by brain scans and the chemical imbalances in the human brain when afflicted with mental illness. The mental health community continues to fight against the stigma and myth surrounding the validity and visibility of mental illness. Sharing both facts and stories about mental illness helps to paint a brighter, fuller, and more accurate depiction. As May is mental health awareness month this project coincides with a time for education and narrative around mental health. Ultimately I hope for the viewer to take away an impression of how the brain is effected by different mental illnesses and the role that chemical imbalances play in mental illness. Mental illness is not a myth or a weakness, but is a medical condition that can be treated to help people with mental illness live fulfilling and flourishing lives.
