Why this campaign?

This campaign is created to raise awareness of mental health. Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers and 13% of children each year. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle, or whatever it may be.

This cause is very dear to me as I am also going through it, hence I created this campaign to raise awareness on the importance of mental health and suicide prevention. Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers and 13% of children each year. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle, or whatever it may be.

However, only half of those affected receive treatment, often because of the stigma attached to mental health. Untreated, mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenses, poorer performance at school and work, fewer employment opportunities and increased risk of suicide.

I have been struggling with my mental health. It's okay not to be okay, just don't give up.
Everyone has their own struggle, emotionally and mentally. Everyone is afraid of uncertainty. Hence, the design was created to symbolize our path in life. Ride the waves, through good and bad.

You are doing great, relax. You cannot control what the future holds but you can take one day at a time. To go through life with an open mind. At least that's how I do it. I ride the wave for days.

Cheers, Inez
