Mental Health:

As part of the University of the West of England's disability awareness month, 2016, a series of competitions were held relating to disability awareness: from poems to posters. The poster competition is split into several categories: Mental health, Specific learning difficulties, Physical disabilities, and Sensory loss and autism spectrum.

I wanted to highlight the fact that people with mental health conditions often choose to suffer in silence for fear of being judged. My poster's simple and direct approach challenges this stigma to help open up dialogue and encourage people to seek support.
