Graphical analysis


Mental health awareness is currently at its highest, marked by days, weeks and months on the calendar. This is the achievement of the many campaigns led by public and private institutions, and the hundreds of charities built around these issues. The shared goal is to erase the stigma around mental health disorders and encourage people to seek help.

But what happens when support is sought? What resources are available, and how do we access them?

We are here to help you is a series of projects in which I revisit my personal experience applying for mental health aid from public services in the UK. It starts by translating the journey into a flowchart and then zooms in progressively through different lenses of graphical analysis.

The umbrella line of enquiry ‘how did aid-seeking become detrimental’ was navigated through sub-queries led by the findings of each investigation method.

The foundation of the research is a flowchart that tracks the route I followed to access treatment. It includes the organisations, people and procedures I encountered across the application process, providing a bird’s-eye view of the journey and its ramifications.

Looking closer at the process, it comes across as scripted - where each organisation plays a different role depending on the services they provide. The following text contrasts how the institutions present themselves through their marketing material with my experience as a patient.

Most of the application is made through paperwork. I compiled the documents I was supplied with into a printed archive. It’s printed on continuous paper to embody the length of this procedure - 80m in total, taller than a 20-storey building.

Over time, I found it challenging completing the monitoring questionnaires. One of the symptoms of depression is having trouble concentrating. When we can’t focus, we tend to skim-read. I distilled one of the tests by removing five words at a time, scanning for its core messages.

I did find a vast amount of people out there to help me, but for some reason, meeting more carers seemed to harm me. The following experiment is a first-person virtual reality simulation which recreates a selection of moments I experienced.

What started as a personal reflection is now a discussion platform. Weareheretohelpyou.uk aims to enact change and take the conversation around mental health to its next chapter. So far, we have talked about the importance of awareness; now it’s time to work on the support services. To do so, we need to scrutinise the current system and seek ways to make it more effective.

Reflective research through Graphic Communication
Despite the public status of these projects, the immediate nature of the research was introspective. The work depicts a reflective process in which I look back at a personal experience in an attempt to process it - in a similar way to how psychotherapy deals with trauma. Actively completing this through visual languages allows me to take steps towards understanding what happened and why it felt harmful.

The final project was presented as an interactive experience at Central Saint Martins Shows 2022.
