Abstract

Mental illnesses are constantly misrepresented by the media. They are stigmatized or glorified in ways that can be harmful for those who struggle with them. And for these reasons many people choose not to seek out treatment, which can lead to much more harmful decisions. This project aims to combat those views of mental illness by creating a narrative that portrays mental illness in a realistic way. This narrative is influenced by my research and personal experiences with mental illness and emphasizes the importance of positive communication as a solution based on the concepts of using art as a means of hope and self-understanding.
