You may recognize Jessica Walsh, a graphic designer living in New York, from a project she did in 2013 with creative partner Timothy Goodman entitled “40 Days of Dating.”

After revealing her past struggle with anorexia, anxiety, and depression as a part of their new project, “12 Steps of Kindness,” Walsh received messages from friends and colleagues about their own mental health battles. She was so moved, she created a site called Let’s Talk About Mental Health to share stories about how so many people deal with this every day.

Walsh also transformed snippets of those powerful narratives into eye-catching graphics for an Instagram account of the same name (@letstalkaboutmentalhealth) to help fight the stigma surrounding mental illness. See for yourself in the inspiring examples below. Then read the full-length personal stories on the project website.

I learned that fear isn’t real and that I have the power to face it. I learned that nothing in life is worth falling apart over. I realized I could survive anything.”— Dana, 29, Connecticut, USA

It’s more socially acceptable to many people than anxiety attacks.”— Sienna, 33, Berlin, Germany
