#SAVE 2020

Mental Health is an essential part of our day to day lives. The way we think, feel and act, the manner in which we interact with others and deal with our feelings and stress, the pursuit of our goals and dreams and the choices we make are totally affected by the state of our psychological wellness.

Our mental health is just as important and significant as our physical health. At the point when the body is debilitated, the mind is the first to know. The body imparts signals to the cerebrum that something is off with the body. Likewise, when one’s mental health is affected the brain sends signals to the body and sometimes even presents itself as ulcer, insomnia, fever or flu, migraines, constipation, nausea and more.

The discussion about mental health needs to continue now like never before. We can’t stop talking about it! We have to keep educating ourselves on the knowledge of mental health and the importance of mental wellness. In our efforts to continue the conversation, we have asked the following young and diverse creatives to lend their voice and art to raise more awareness to the cause of mental health. Using their art to create an expression of what mental health means to them.
