Visual Arts - Mental Health Awareness in Children & Young Adults
LET’S START THE CONVERSATION
Factual plays, surrounding social factors, illness, bullying, and racism, aimed at children and young adults to get discussions started. Through visual arts we can reach out to young minds and help process thoughts and insecurities.
Mental health support at a young age can help children process problems as they develop. Through the arts, there has always been the ability to engage without judgment, to share knowledge, answers, understanding, and a message of hope and trust. It helps them explore their own situations.
Visual Art (Stage or Screen), mirroring as therapy, helps to communicate feelings or thoughts they find difficult to talk about. It helps them to look at a problem or situation in a new way and explore difficult or painful personal experiences.
Mental Health is a growing issue amongst our younger generation and although there is a huge amount of help to be had, there is still a highlighted amount of children and young people that do not come forward. The recent challenges of the Covid pandemic have highlighted this more than ever, and managing fears and uncertainty in young minds is apparent and when it comes to how we engage with them needs to reach out to the heart of the problems. Factual, visual arts will help them understand themselves better and not hide in the shadows with their own demons.
Mental health affects people in so many ways and yet, the most difficult part is self-acknowledgment, to be able speak out about it without feeling embarrassed or stupid is a double edge sword. It's not easy to talk, it’s not easy to express feelings, it’s not easy to acknowledge suffering, and it’s not easy to ask others to understand!
