dc.description.abstractIn this study, as both a researcher an artist, I endeavor to capture the nature of mental health disorders in the form of artwork. With the use of in-depth interviews and arts-based methods, I explore mental health based on the experiences of four participants. Along with the experiences of these participants, I include my own reflections. This study is an exploratory and collaborative project between the participants and myself, to make sense of mental health disorders through art. The included artwork will depict my own interpretation of the participants' experiences with mental health, and will also include the participants' suggested revisions of the art which I created. The goal of this study is to see how well artists can express and capture mental health disorders of others in their chosen medium.
