Mental health is the pandemic of our generation, over 10 million people in the UK have a phobia whether it is of spiders, heights, clowns or something a little more unique. When thinking about phobias people often think of overly dramatic or sensitive people.

This is far from realistic as phobias stem from childhood and often rule and dictate people’s lives.  My exhibition raises awareness through a crime suspect board. This is because often people struggle to see the significance of mental health until they can see a physical sign. For my project I am personifying fears, the grasp they have on someone’s reality and freedom, taking over their whole life.  The suspect is some peoples oldest and closest friend… their phobia.
