For Mental Health Awareness Month, I did 14 illustrations about important statistics surrounding mental health. I wanted to raise awareness about the reality of how many people are affected by mental illness so that they are more informed and to help them feel less alone.

Some of these statistics are shockingly high, and I learned a lot about mental health and all the resources out there for people like me, who are struggling with depression and anxiety.

If you are struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts, here is a helpline where you can reach out.

Facts are from the following sources: Nami, The National Coalition for the Homeless, Mentalhealth, Activeminds, Independent, The US Department of Veterans Affairs, and thetrevorproject.
