Acknowledging Anxiety

These illustrations are the wonderful work of Pranita Kocharekar, an independent artist from Mumbai. She draws for a living and often spends time pondering about everything under the sun.


She says, "I didn't realise I was suffering through anxiety until it started impacting my day-to-day activities. I began noting down my triggers and journaling all these anxious moments. I created these illustrations expressing this and the idea was to make people aware that they are not alone- acknowledging anxiety and acting on it is the first step to healthier psychological wellbeing. A lot of people don't know enough about mental health and can’t relate to those who are challenged with psychological vulnerabilities. I hope that through vocalising these struggles, people start realising that just because we don't understand how something works, doesn't mean it can't exist."
