Self Love of the Human Mind is a collaborative project revolving around mental health. With the combinational use of photography and conversations, participants have shared their thoughts in hopes of supporting those affected but often feel silenced. The aim is to raise awareness by creating a discussion that transforms and changes the way society views mental wellbeing. If there is a better overall understanding by society, it can help minimise the extent of people suffering today.
Approximately 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any give year. This has lead to the biggest cause of death under 45 to be suicide. The numbers reflect the reality, each one representing a life that can be affected by mental health. Therefore, a powerful tool like photography has allowed the volunteers to come together on the project, connecting the message to the wider public.
Self Love of the Human Mind’s purpose is to create new, and positive perceptions of mental well being that highlight the importance of loving of our mind.
