What does it feel like to live with mental illness; in particular, anxiety?

Dylan Hart, 21

Suicide is the main cause of death of young people (of all genders) between the age of 18 and 35. our mental health system is failing and as a result suicide rates are rising. This is an epidemic that needs more media attention, and a huge problem that the NHS mental health system needs to address. Our mental health system doesn’t work it is severely outdated. In this project I look at visually representing what it feels like to live with mental illness in particular anxiety through my own experience of the illness and how it has a huge impact on peoples lives through drawing, photography, graphic design and fashion design.
