Experience art by eden within featured on the book 'Of Sound Mind' alongside other artists and photographers. The handmade and crowd sourced book is also set to present letters and stories about the fragile state of mental health.
Mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. A mental illness constitutes depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and borderline personality disorder. One in four people will experience a mental illness in their lifetime; if you're not affected by it then chances are one of your friends or family members are and if you don't know anyone with a mental illness it's probably because they haven’t told you, and they haven’t told you as there’s a social stigma attached to mental health.
The Of Sound Mind book encourages you to share your experience with mental health. It is a chance to get something off your chest, to put words to thoughts that might be too complicated to speak aloud. But it is also a moment to pause and celebrate the best of life.
