As today in Mental Health Awareness Day, here are 6 Great animations with themes of mental health. Mental health is a difficult subject to talk for both sufferers and those that care about a sufferer. It can be difficult to understand if you haven’t suffered, animation handles this complex, abstract subject brilliantly, that maybe would not have worked as effectively in live action.
