Asking for help was the best decision I ever made. I'll never forget feeling hopeless and defeated every day. Suicide seemed like the only solution. The day I decided to speak up and ask for help my entire world changed. I know it's scary to take that first step... but I promise you - it's worth it. You're worth it!
A covered mouth alludes to being silenced. This is a mask that encourages speaking up. We need to destigmatize mental health, an issue that touches upon each of us. It does not discriminate by race, age, gender or any other demographic trait. No one is immune. Many suffer in silence.
#MindfulArtxMentalHealth highlights purposeful works of art and encourages conversation about mental health. The masks are a canvas for the unique artwork of artists/patients from Les Impatients, a local non-profit organization. Every piece tells the story of an artist struggling with mental health issues, sharing their journey to recovery through the power of creative expression. 10% of all proceeds are given back to the community to support and raise awareness for mental health.
We need to come together as a community to normalize talking about mental health, dispel the stigma and support those living with mental health issues. By sharing a thought or a story, your voice may open discussion and a door to helping someone's struggle.
