Powerful Photo Series Represents People of Color and Mental Illness

Dior Vargas, who identifies as both Latina and a feminist, was frustrated by the lack of representation surrounding mental illness for men and women of color.

So she took to social media and started a photo campaign to challenge the idea that mental illness is a “white people disease.”

This photo series also changes the idea that you should be “ashamed” about sharing your mental illness.

The photos themselves are pretty incredible. What’s even more incredible is that the photo series includes over 60 photos of men and women of color.

said Vargas

What are your thoughts? Is mental illness seen as a “white person’s disease”? How does this photo series help with representation?
