These are a series of animations that I created to be used across social media as part of my final major project ‘Speak your mind’. I created a campaign on behalf of the mental health charity Mind aimed at young people, encouraging them to speak up about their mental health, specifically depression. I was inspired to do a mental health related campaign after only ever seeing material about depression in doctors surgeries, I felt this was pointless as the doctors is the place you go when you’re ready to speak and get help. I wanted to make a campaign for people that hadn’t yet spoken up and maybe thought that depression wasn’t really an illness. I also feel that by campaigning out of doctors surgeries it would help break the stigma which is unfortunately still surrounding mental health.
