Welcome to the website about visualizing mental illness!

Here on the site there will be information about common mental illnesses (provided from the National Institute of Mental Health). Along with several illustrations demonstrating what it is like to suffer with these illnesses.

What Is Mental Illness?

Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in emotion, thinking or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.

Common misconceptions about mental illness makes it harder for people to get diagnosed, and therefore have a harder time in life. It is my goal with this website to provide the information from mental health sources, and to create images to help users better understand the symptoms.
