I saw somebody had created their own tshirt raising awareness of mental health and I decided I would like to join in. I personally have suffered with post-natal depression and anxiety and come through the other side. I still felt moments of happiness but it always felt tainted, like I had a black cloud always hanging over me.
I created a range of sayings/slogans that I felt best described what you can go through during a mental health illness. I decided on All the highs and all the lows. We some help from my friends and family.
I then set to work, drawing, creating, but I am not an artist. I tried my best to draw my own design but it never came out how I imagined it.
Anyway I decided on a very simple design and thought I would go from there.
I don't know if anyone will purchase the tshirts but if they do I would love to give back to some mental health charities.
You never know if you might develop a mental health illness in your life, but if you do, you are never alone.
Love, Kate. x
