I love painting because it helps me to overcome my anxiety. I do paintings by number with acrylic colours and draw portraits of famous people with pencils. In the past, I spent some time with Art Brut - a type of art, which is only for people, who have problems with mental health. My mental health conditions are because I have hobbies like sports and drawing are much better. Now I work as a Peer Consultant in the League for Mental Health

The artists' stories

"The Vibrant Mind" is an art contest that celebrates artistic expression from individuals with mental health conditions. By focusing on the artists' work rather than their various diagnoses, it hopes to promote a stigma-free and inclusive environment.


That being said, the participants were given the option to share their background stories if they wished to do so.
