Mental health is something everyone can relate to but there is a lot of stigma against men and the younger generation. With this project Rachel Lockyer wants to create something around the statistics and figures found during my research to educate the public. This could be either it being a book, comic, or a series of illustrations. Mental health has always been an important subject for Lockyer. She has had depression and anxiety for as long as she can remember. Lockyer has had people tell her that she has nothing to be depressed about when they do not know the full story. In this project, Lockyer won’t be telling the reasons behind her depression; she will be creating illustrations about the feelings around it all. The project will be more than just something to look at, Lockyer wants people to be able to learn from the creation. This is not self-diagnosing; it is more of an awareness of how to be around people who suffer from mental health issues. Lockyer is aiming to create a safe place where the reader can feel safe and understood and to open people’s minds to problems which they would not necessarily think about. This project will include helpful resources at the end of the book so if the reader feels they relate to what there seeing, they are able to get the support they need.
