Mental disorders as monsters

mental disorders as monsters

Today I want to talk about this amazing work of art of Toby Allen.

Toby Allen is an artist that suffered from anxiety. He wanted to capture mental illnesses as drawings of monsters to explain and understand what it feels like to have a mental disorder and having a real image of each disease.

As a future psychologist ( 😉 ) I foun this project greatly interesting and I hope you too, because it’s very important understand people with this kind of sickness and know how they have to deal everyday with something as hard as schizophrenia, anxiety or paranoia.

This is the blog of Toby Allen if you want to have a look on it: zestydoesthings.tumblr.com

And this are the awesome drawings he did!
