Art and Journaling have forever changed the way I experience the world around me. My journey started in university when I received a life-changing diagnosis. After learning I had bipolar disorder and general anxiety disorder, I struggled to navigate the day to day while prioritizing my own mental health. Paired with doctor prescribed treatment and therapy, intentional creation through art and journaling have enabled me to reduce my anxiety, and feel more in control of my mental health. After experiencing my own transformation, I set out to share this with as many people as possible. These techniques won’t magically make problems or diagnosis disappear, but they are powerful tools you can use to manage your mental health every day.
