We are all bananas mental health awareness Campaign Illustration


I recently created this hat illustration in support of the #weRallbananas mental health campaign to encourage young people to talk openly about their problems. It is a great campaign that I just could not ignore because I strongly believe it is time to break the stigma that is associated with mental health, especially for young people when they are feeling vulnerable.  

You too can get involved by posting selfie holding a banana (or two!) with your own advice written on it. You can then post it to your chosen social media using the hashtag #weRallbananas. The hashtag will also put you in touch with other banana selfie pieces of advice and amusing photos. Like the Ice Bucket challenge, you can also nominate friends to get involved. If you’re feeling creative as I was, you are also welcomed to post a doodle, a sketch or a creation.  

If you would like to donate to the campaign you can text ‘MSMD10 £2’ to 70070 and you can find the website here.

The Libertarian is all for the breaking down of boundaries through the mediums of art and design. If you decide to rise to the challenge and get involved, I would love to see what you come up with!
