I use art to understand where I’ve been and where I am. I’m curious as to how my mental illness will manifest through my art over time. Where it originally started as a word or question it is now manifesting in scenes and stories. Perhaps this can open up the mental health conversation and what we can do to live through these experiences.
Dealing with suicidal thoughts is very tough, and my hat goes off to anyone like me, who keeps going, keeps dealing with these thoughts. I share my story. I share my thoughts and my experiences day to day with mental illness. I hope this story helps with teenagers and their mental health, and encourages them to speak up if they are struggling.
