depression and photography

Video of the month - August 2018

Well, I'm sure this months video of the month will come as no surprise. It inspired my last post and has even inspired a whole series of posts that I'm busy working on at the moment.

That's right (drum roll please), this months Video of the Month is Joseph Seager's video "5 Way Photography is Good for your Mental Health" .

In this video, Joseph talks about how he used photography to help him through a recent bout of poor mental health and why he feels it is important to break down the stigma attached to mental health.

Focus - Can Photography Help Improve Mental Health?

Mental health can mean different things to different people and there are a whole range of medical and psychological conditions that fall under the umbrella of mental health. We're all so different and, with so many different mental health conditions, it isn’t really surprising that there doesn’t seem to be a one-size-fits-all treatment for mental health conditions.

With this in mind, I am putting together a series of posts on mental health and how photography has helped me and others I've known, through periods of difficult mental health. My hope in putting this series together is to share some of the tips and advice that have helped me in the past, in the hope that a few other people may also find some value.
