A mock New York Times magazine cover (which features the famous “T” logo) concerning the importance of caring for mental health.
The Value of Mental Health
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. According to the 2004 US Census, almost 60 million Americans suffer from a diagnosed mental disorder. Unfortunately, due to lack of understanding and societal pressures, many individuals feel ashamed to seek help. They suffer in prolonged silence from invisible, yet debilitating, diseases.
I am a strong advocate for ending social stigma against mental illness. Thus, I painted this piece in honor of mental health awareness. I designed a mock New York Times magazine cover which features the famous “T” logo.
