MENTAL - Struggles and Stigma
Concept Designer & Model: @dane_ophelia
The photo series, MENTAL, strives to help raise awareness and inspire discussion surrounding mental illness in our culture. Get the stigma OUT. Let go of the shame and experiences that seemingly occur in shadow. Release the fear of asking for help, finding support. Let this no longer be a taboo subject. With more awareness, MENTAL endeavors toward hope for healing, recovery and living a life feeling more strong and self-possessed. This series acknowledges strongly that it is not only females that struggle with mental instability; this series is ongoing.
