“I made this art piece as a reminder to myself. I often feel depressed and when I do, I usually subconsciously want to stay sad and depressed. I don’t want to put in the effort to get better, and find comfort in the sadness. This piece has a phrase that I use to remind myself that it’s okay to put effort towards your mental health, and not just accept defeat.”
ARTIST BIO: Evie McDonough is a Grade 10 student at Princeton High School.
