We talk about the benefits of art for one’s mental health, mental health-related trends in art and the media (trigger warning and spoiler alert: yes, we talk about 13RW) and the responsible portrayal of mental health issues. We also open up about struggles such as comparing ourselves to others, staying motivated to create and delineating between art for oneself/art for others.
