Anyone who has ever suffered from a mental illness and/or disorder will know that sometimes it feels like other people have no idea what you’re going through. They try to empathize but the reality is unless they have experienced it first hand, they’ll never fully understand. One person who is helping to show people what certain mental illnesses and disorders feel like is Shawn Coss. As part of ‘Inktober’, Shawn chose to draw one illustration a day focusing on a different illness/disorder. We think they are extremely powerful. Take a look!
