True Mind: Mental Health

While many students struggle with mental health concerns, only a small percentage of those affected receive treatment. Faced with new realities of a global pandemic, True Mind is a non-profit organization that strives to provide a community and resources to educate and inform college students about the importance of mental health and prevalent anxiety disorders.

Mental health is a heavy topic with various types of disorders. I focused specifically on anxiety disorders and researched causes and risk factors for each type. I found that some disorders can occur simultaneously, overlap, or have similar symptoms.

Brand Mascots

I began with a variety of doodles combining color blobs with human characteristics. My goal was to create characters that were not associated with any existing forms, yet still representative of students.

True Mind has seven brand mascots, each associated with a specific anxiety disorder to educate the audience more in-depth. They were given names based on their disorder and together are called the Mind Mix.
