Have You Heard About The Da Silly Heads Project based in CIT

Knock, knock

Who’s there?

Anxiety

Anxiety who?

Anxiety who?

Damn it, he got me again.

We are Da Silly Heads. Our newly developed concept is aimed to Put a Face on Mental Health through visual representations of various mental health illnesses. Using sketched and graphically designed characters, we tell a personal story depicting situations that may present themselves to a sufferer.

After years of experiencing helpful, but ridged supports which undoubtedly played their part in changing negative attitudes held in society, we felt it’s time to draw attention to the topic in a more relaxed fashion. In no way are our intentions to dilute the severity of mental illness, but rather to offer an alternative space to individuals who may need it.

 

Experiencing diagnosed G.A.D (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), O.C.D (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Depression and Bi-Polar disorder, and encountering the stigma associated with such illnesses, led to the creation of Da Silly Heads.

 

 

Through our social media platforms, website, and impact driven events, we hope to connect with those who are affected by mental illness and those who are not, building an empathetic stigma free community. Our partnership with Please Talk opens up new doors that allows Da Silly Heads to reach a wider audience, and add new ways of delivering our message.

When it comes to the status quo, we tend to turn a blind eye. We don’t do boring, especially when it comes to highlighting mental health. You can expect to be surprised, inspired, and encouraged to play your part in changing attitudes around mental health. Da Silly Heads pilot event will take place in one of Ireland’s 3rd Level Institutions in February 2019. If you support our cause and can relate to the Da Silly Heads’ message, why not meet our silly heads and become part of the movement? Stay tuned for more 🙂
