"Foggy, like you’re behind a thick pane of glass watching everyone else live life." – Depression

When you search for "mental health stock photos", the results are less than encouraging. It's a 50/50 split of mostly white, mostly male models with their head in their hands or a gun to their head. So, we've decided to change that.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Instead of just seeing imagery that makes depression look like a headache, we want to see images that creatively and truthfully reflect how a multitude of mental health problems can feel. We used the results an anonymous survey where sufferers outlined their experiences so we could work out a representation. These are the results.

"Looking back on my first marriage, I can't say that I wish it hadn't happened – it taught me a huge amount about myself and my value. My life had been defined by my relationship with someone else. My personality had been subsumed into something bland and small." Jean* was married for less than four months when she was 29. And though the marriage quickly fell apart, she's still grateful for it.

What does your tote bag say about you? We asked some R29 staffers and the answers range from political, show-y off-y to just plain convenience. #linkinbio β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

CARBS. ARE. GOOD. Stop avoiding them.

You'd be forgiven for forgetting, though. It's 2018: homes are full of cheese plants, the world is run by monsters, and potatoes are saved for 'cheat days'. But, as @laurajgood says "if we’ve been convinced we shouldn’t eat them, that’s just another of the countless ways we’ve been mugged off. Like with Brexit. And post-sugar tax Ribena."

Read all of Laura's love letter to bounteous carbohydrates through #linkinbio and don't neglect to have chips with your lunch. Why not? We all die in the end.
