The designs were inspired by the periodic table of elements. Mostly, the elements exist naturally, they are part of the human fabric and existence. They are part of our make-up. Replacing the common element symbols with representations of mental health conditions is a nod to the perspective that we all experience mental health disruptions in different ways at different stages of our lives; some more intensely than others, and if we change the way we see it, maybe we will be more open to sharing and discussing our experiences. Also, using the table of elements design is also a more literal validation of the chemical and biological nature of mental health issues, challenging the myth that it is “all in your head”. Our hope is that educating around this truth will help reduce feeling blame for struggles.
