People with mental illness have to fight not only their own illness but also the misconceptions and prejudices from the outside world. In this project, I chose some mental illnesses and mental disorders by investigating the symptoms, stigma, and prejudice of these illnesses. I developed a series of illustrations to make the audience understand the feelings and struggles of the patients and to help people realize that mental illness is not a terrible disease.
