In a society that weighs heavily on teaching young people how to work hard and get the best grades, we often overlook mental health. Resilience is a series of portraits and corresponding still life photographs of people who work with young people (11 to 25), who suffer with mental health problems. With each person, I discussed their views on current political and social attitudes towards mental health and what they believe would be a positive way for our society to improve its stance on the matter. Unanimously, they offered a solution of preventative action, providing children with a better awareness of their own and others mental health. Giving people the opportunity to be mentally resilient.
