“Media’s choice of images to depict stories about mental health can be isolating”

Image
The article “Media’s choice of images to depict stories about mental health can be isolating” by Serina Sandhu discusses the issues reflecting the way mental health is displayed in mass media.As mental health issues do not only affect women, this articles respectfully discusses mental health problems surrounding the lives of men. According to Sandhu, an organization titled ‘The Calm Photography Movement’ will be having an exhibition to raise funds and awareness to prevent male suicide for the “Campaign against Living Miserably.” The author wanted to capture mental health through photographs that actually depict a person’s story rather than the typical commercial photographs made by companies. The Campaign against Living Miserably is hoping to finally put an end to stigma. The photographs shown in this exhibition, allows the viewers to question themselves which is what the purpose of some of the photographs are for.
