These T-Shirt Designs Help Remove The Stigma From Mental Disorders [Pics]

The 'Living With' collection by Dani Balenson uses abstract designs in an attempt to destigmatize OCD, depression, ADHD, and bipolar disorder.

Living With‘ is a collection of t-shirts designed by Brooklyn-based artist Dani Balenson, a recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. It started as a degree project and has evolved into a social endeavor that aims to spark new conversations about mental health.

Each t-shirt features an abstract design based on the behavioral patterns of disorders such as depression, OCD, ADHD, and biopolar disorder. The Depression t-shirt consists of a deep purple color palette, with bulbous shapes that replicate the sense of an internal weight pulling down on the sufferer. Donning  one of these shirts allows the wearer to feel empowered and accepted without having to publicly announce their mental status to the world.

The four t-shirts in the collection are available to purchase for $24, with $2 from every shirt sold donated to Active Minds, an organization that works to destigmatize mental illnesses on college campuses and encourages students to speak out about mental health.
