Abstract
  • This thesis is an illustrated look at my own everyday experiences with depression. By exposing the personal aspects of the symptoms, I hope to help contribute to society’s understanding of depression as a whole. Art in particular provides us an avenue unlike any other to express ourselves, and doing so in regards to mental illness is important to spreading awareness and true understanding. Often we get caught up in the diagnostic criteria, stigma, and stereotypes surrounding the disorder, and fail to realize subtle signs and daily experience. Working on this project was not only valuable as a contribution to the field of psychology, but also in that it allowed me to express my feelings and thoughts more clearly than I could have with words alone. Through the psychologically-centered analysis of famous works of art and the creation of my own, I hope to provide not only a better understanding of depression but also motivation for others to utilize art in giving their thoughts and feelings life when words can be so difficult. Key Words: psychology, art, depression, anthology, mental illness
