I chose to base my project off of mental health, focusing my research on the most common types of mental health issues that people face such as depression, anxiety and stress. I then branched out and touch on other areas of importance such as eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, as these are very important types of mental illness that aren’t talked about enough. I also focused on these areas mostly because many people suffer with these types of mental illnesses in particular and struggle to open up about their own personal problems and feelings. I was inspired to work on this topic because many of my family members and friends have struggled with mental health issues in the past, so it is very personal to me. Also, many people who have not struggled with mental health issues may not understand what they are or how to help a family member or friend who struggles with one, by shedding a light on this topic, it may help give more information to people unsure, and also help people struggling to speak up.
