"Do you have a safe place where you retreat to recover from the days stresses and anxieties?
.
.
For me its going out into nature, its where i feel the safest, no one is there, its peaceful, no people or urban noises, nature is so beautiful, day or night ill always head outside!
I find nature to be far safer than being with people.
I know people think im strange because im not that social but when you have difficulties with interpreting others moods/needs i tend to withdraw.

"Anxiety reminds me of fishing line. The racing thoughts get all tangled up. It takes so much energy to get it undone. And even once you think that you have it all straightened out. There are still some knots left that never come out. "Fuck Anxiety" (2016) Acrylic and Charcoal on Wood 15x17."

Updated challenge info! We are also in the process of making an official gallery of these challenges on our website which is great because then we can add more spaces! (However, for our instagram slideshow it will still have to be cut off at 9).

“When I was diagnosed bipolar I was very resistant to the idea, however in the 6+ years since then I’ve learned to be proud of who I am and what I’ve been through. One of the ways I do that is sharing my artwork and being open about the struggles which inspired it. The above was drawn in a two day period where I was grappling with mania and psychosis while still going to work and just trying live life. I came very close to falling off that edge, but fortunately I was able to restore most of my sanity.”

“I have always gravitated towards photography. Since I was 12, I’ve struggled with expressing my emotions and in turn went towards self harm. But now at 20 years old, I’ve taken all of my pain, emotion and turned it into passion. These images and many more can be featured on my Instagram, while I express how I feel living with multiple mental disorders. The pictures bring to life something I’ve always tried to hide.”

“I was inspired to draw this when I was watching a documentary on bipolar called Of Two Minds. It reminded me of the deep endless feeling pain that lows and all depression bring.”

“This is a photo I took while watching late night TV. I was a hallucinating and hearing voices, so I snap the picture and drew what I saw digitally on the computer.
.
2nd photo- “I see the weirdest things in my dreams sometimes. What I saw was a foot with a head attached to it. I didn’t understand why I dream it. Its eyes wasn’t even symmetric with the other. Monster in my dreams are the worst they reflect what I vision the voices to be…. Just monsters.”
.
I want to share this. As an 20 year old African-American dealing with mental illness its hard to find support. We are typically taught that we have to be strong and independent… not relying on anyone. That if we had a mental illness we are seen as weak, need to get out more or we need prayer. I want to bring awareness to the African-american community. And to fight the stigma we all have against mental illness. We are not weak for having a mental illness.”
