How can we empower people struggling with mental health issues?
How can we break taboos around depression and suicide and start conversations about these issues?
How can we reduce shame and prejudice around these topics?
not-alright is a platform for artistic exploration and storytelling around mental health and depression. With this project we would like to provide new perspectives and approaches, and thus educate in a respectful and humble way while asking questions, finding answers, and inspiring conversations. The aim is to encourage others to find their own forms of expression through artworks and essays by affected people. The goal is to raise awarness in a low-threshold way and to overcome the speechlessness of those affected, their families and friends, as well as to create a sense of self-efficacy. We believe that it is often the most helpful to hear the voice of affected people and we are convinced that we need to talk a lot more about mental health.
