Improper Walls is very happy to have a chance to collaborate with Made of Millions on the NO ONE TOLD ME group exhibition to shed light on the treatment gap. 1 in 4 people will be diagnosed with a mental disorder at some point in their lives.
In 2020, that’s roughly 1.9 billion people. But less than 40% will ever seek help, and those that do, spend an average of 10 years suffering in silence. This mental health awareness month, modern advocacy nonprofit, Made of Millions, focused their efforts on the treatment gap — the long, avoidable years so many people spend suffering in silence. Launched the first week of May, the #NoOneToldMe campaign has quickly snowballed into a mini global movement, shedding light on the long lasting pain that stems from undiagnosed and untreated mental conditions.
The campaign hopes to raise awareness of massive gaps in our education and mental healthcare sectors and put pressure on changemakers to invest in much-needed reform. With the NO ONE TOLD ME exhibition Improper Walls invites all artists, whether they’ve experienced this themselves, know someone who has, or relates to the treatment gap theme in any way, to reflect, tell stories and share experiences through their work.
