Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. More than 400,000 Irish people experience depression at any one time and two-thirds of people suffering from depression do not seek necessary treatment.
My project is based on mental health awareness focusing on depression. Its aim is to encourage sufferers to seek appropriate help and giving information on the science behind depression, antidepressants, and alternative forms of treatment, such as your diet, exercise and meditation. This awareness of depression is depicted through a website, a book and poster and postcard series.
