Stress Eaters is a project that I wanted to work on to help others externalize their anxieties. For me, I felt like writing down my thoughts made them feel more real, and not just something in my head; writing is repetitive and introspective. The concept of Stress Eaters is that, not only do you write down what you are feeling anxious about, but once the doll eats your stress, you don’t have to worry about that issue anymore.
Anxiety and depression are major mental health issues that I, and many other people struggle with every day. There is no one way that works for everyone when it comes to dealing with mental health, but I have always found that writing down my feelings has always really helped me deal with anxiety and depression.
I am a fourth year advertising major at the Alberta College of Art and Design, and am a mental health advocate with mental health first aid training.
