Out of sight, out of my mind

"Everyone deserves their rights to mental healthcare"
Campaign to challenge the perception of prisoners with mental health problems. 

A self-directed project on a really interesting topic. I learnt a lot about the statistics of prisoners suffering with mental health problems, which helped me to make informed decisions about the message I wanted to get across. Prisoners face a double stigma; they are both criminals and victims of mental health problems. By putting them in prison, they are simply out of sight, out of mind.
