The Art of Mental Health

Being a nursing major with a minor in art has really inspired me to find ways to incorporate and connect both of my passions. I failed two years of nursing school becoming very discourage with myself and not finding hope for my future and motivation in my life. when I was held back for the second year I was informed I could continue in taking the Mental Health nursing course in the upcoming semester. I decided to merge my new understanding of mental health and my own personal struggles with my passion for art and helping others. I created a series of ten paintings based off mental health illnesses. I wanted my pieces to be emotional and disturbing so people could not just gain knowledge and understanding of what it looks like to live with these mental illnesses but to feel the raw emotion that these people feel every day. I feel as humans we learn best through imagery and symbolism and that is why every portion of my art held symbolism to the mental illness it was depicting. I wanted to help and bring peace to people with mental struggles. Sometimes we do not know how to explain or understand our struggles, but my art was made in place of those words that we never know how to say.
