Mental health is not something that should be taken lightly.
Over the past few years, more and more studies have shown just how important mental health is to our well-being and how we should not neglect it. However, many people today still don’t know how to go about talking about mental health, or better yet, how to handle people with mental health issues.
In fact, it’s not uncommon for society to discriminate against people with mental health disorders.
Mexico-based artist, Sofía Román, is no stranger to that.
Having struggled with bipolar disorder since she was 16 years old and having been officially diagnosed 2 years later when she turned 18, Sofía has used art over the years to cope and express her feelings, which have often been misunderstood by the people around her.
Now, after years of therapy, she hopes that her art will get people talking about mental health disorders, specifically, bipolar disorder. She believes that art is a way of helping to end the stigma and discrimination towards and against people who are struggling with mental health issues.
