Yesterday was the 10th of October, what is known to many as World Mental Health Day. With this in mind I wanted to draw something different, dedicating it to the people who battle mental health on a daily basis. This artwork is for the warriors, the brave, those who push forwards, often putting others first.
I think we all know people who suffer, struggle or battle with internal demons. The world has evolved, we talk more, there is easier access to information and support. So our awareness and understanding of mental health has certainly changed.
It is crazy to think that mental health problems affect one in four people! Be it depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bipolar etc… Mental health comes in many different shapes and sizes, with varying ways to cope. Now I am no expert, but I know every mind is different, and there are different perspectives to consider. Stuff is also relative, I don’t know your mind, as you don’t know mine.
So… if this artwork got you thinking, or if you can relate to it, then please talk to someone. That is my advice for today. Listen and learn from others who have walked down a similar path, you are unique but not alone!

In May 2021 I moved back to Southsea, an area of Portsmouth I left several years ago. I lived in Southsea for a number of years prior, but moved to Drayton in 2014.
