After researching mental health, British designer Patrick Smith took it upon himself to represent several mental illnesses with minimalist posters. Obviously a difficult subject, but Smith approaches it creatively and with respect.

I think these are quite beautiful. It’s always refreshing to see mental illness treated with respect and not horror.
Briilant post! I think OCD is my favorite. I am half tempted to put that up minus the lettering below and see which of my friends complains about it.
They’ve GOT to blow this out to include more. NPD, MPD, etc.
The OCD poster instantaneously gave me a **huge** headache.
NPD could be cool…
MPD is now known as dissociative identity disorder.
I dunno, the white square in the depression poster looks a little…well, bright…
I think it’s an interesting idea though, and I too would love to see other diagnoses represented, like bi-polar, etc. The challenge is that the experiences become more and more complicated to represent simply.
