#SAVE 2020 | ILUPEJU SHERIFF


Our mental health is our wellbeing as related to how well we can function satisfactorily as individuals both emotionally and psychologically. 

 It is a person’s condition as regards their psychological and emotional well-being. However, our inner workings as humans and state of mind sometimes seem to erupt beyond control and engulf us leaving our mental health tampered. 

I have created a visual narrative summarizing/ denoting the workings of our inner mind, the possibilities of those mechanics to interact with or shift our emotional state and psychology, and subliminal hint( as represented by the “intervening hand”) stressing the importance of keeping our mental health under check. 

It can also be interpreted from another standpoint which is to say that #ItsOkNotToBeOk.  Sometimes we let the state of our mental health degenerate so much while unchecked. Yes, sometimes that happens and going by what this campaign is all about( as we are creating awareness about the importance of knowing about your mental health), it is Ok Not to Be Ok, but very important that you get help (intervening hand*). There’s nothing awkward about getting help as regards your mental wellness.
