In the final semester of 3rd year, we were tasked with the challenge of designing a booklet, containing no images, just text. We were allowed choose any peice of literature, be it quotes from our favourite movies, our own take on a book, or an opinion. I decided to focus mine on mental illness. Throughout the booklet, I've inserted quotes I've taken from the "Let's all laugh at people with depression." thread on boards.ie. This is a thread thats been on going for years, of daily updates from members of the public who suffer and it gives them an outlet to vent or gain support. Mental illness in Ireland is not treated as seriously as it should be and it's a disgrace. Suicide is the highest killer of men in Ireland between the ages of 15 and 34. The stigma needs to go. It's okay to ask for help. It's okay to talk. It's okay to show emotion, especially as a man.
