A commentary on the stigma on mental health issues

This is 1 of 10 animations in my personal animation project on mental illness stigma.
The project is titled “10 Animations on Mental Illness”



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad. I feel the vocals could have been redone due to some slip ups toward the end, but a good message. The music was hard panned which I disliked, but it didn't get in the way of my listening experience too much. The animation could have used some work and was messy, but it conveyed the message quite well with what words did not say. Nice work.

Animation could use some work, but overall very good.
I can relate to this. I was very young when I first began struggling with metal illness, so I did not label myself as "mentally ill" until around 7th or 8th grade (four years after I started treatment). Before then I just thought of myself as "weird" and was a bit confused as to why none of my classmates went to the same type doctors as I did. All that I knew were the words tossed around by the adults around me, such as "depression", "stress", "anxiety", "OCD-like symptoms"....
When I finally realized what was going on and the connotations with the phrase mentally ill, i feared that I would be considered weak, and would not be able to get a decent job. I worried about how my teachers and school would think of me and if my classmates would look down on me. I later learned that plenty of kids at my school were just like me (an overwhelming number - yikes) and came to terms with my issues. Yes, I am mentally ill, and thats okay. It can be a struggle, but that doesn't mean I am less of a person. I can do the same things as anyone else. I just happen to have some certain hurdles to cross.

An interesting concept.
To be informative there needs to be some more information other than your opinion.
You need to show some stats and research.
The narration needed a bit of work, it wasn't quite clean enough to be an infomercial.
I think 1 of these vids is enough, let alone 9 more...
If you keep it up and refine them a bit, you will probably get some government work, though.

On a side note, maybe do a 10 part study on why caring is beautiful, as opposed to why stigma is bad.... It might bring you some joy :)

I think at this point if you are not seeing a psychiatrist you are either poor or unaware that you desperately need psychiatric care.

pretty cool and with a good message, it's just neurons firing in different patterns, but i believe we all carry our emotional bagage differently, and each one of us in a unique way.
