Mental health needs or illness is a subject many communities choose to ignore. By plotting out visually what is available or lacking in our social landscape we can identify where to move forward to be present in our community to avoid isolation, loneliness and crisis.
Ubuntu is part of an African proverb and where the open source software operating system go it’s name. It’s open source herritage starting from, we’re all in it together, an ethos of village life.
Wellbeing is becoming a popular interest, which can be pushed further into the uncomfortable to establish a concept that daily self care looks different for everyone. An artist using skills attained from MH recovery, to break down stigma and help others thrive in their individuality and lean into the support they have.
