Mental health is a subject that is unfortunately so easy to ignore and rarely gets talked about. Fortunately this subject is starting to get the recognition and publicity it needs and deserves.

Animation students at the Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) have used research conducted by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) to create a series of 5 animations touching on different mental health themes.
