Depression is something that we may know of or have experienced ourselves. It is a complex issue that can be difficult to comprehend, engage with, and it can take time for people to deal with its influence in their lives. Almost every person that exists has experienced a challenging mental state in their lives, depression is when these challenging times are persistent and can make you feel sad and miserable (Ministry of Health). This project acknowledges depression as a significant influence in the lives of young people and the negative stigmas that surround the topic. My central aim was to use my design skills to create a product that can help, support and even guide someone through these challenging times and promote a reconnection to one’s body, mind and soul.
