This comprehensive depiction of well-known personalities was passionately created to represent the endurance exhibited by each one who personally struggled with or became advocates for mental illness – despite their influence on our popular culture. Surprisingly, little is known about how these famous individuals courageously triumphed over their struggles to achieve remarkable success.

My intention of creating this collection was to raise awareness and to encourage those who are impacted by this terrible disease, like me. My message is that there is hope and support. But, most importantly, being reminded that you too can persevere.
