In response to the word ‘together’, this piece represents guidance and support in relation to mental health. The study of hands comes from direct references of my hand as well as the hand of my younger sibling, who is currently struggling, but slowly opening up. As someone who deals with mental health issues myself, I find that it is very important to check in on people as they may be suffering in silence. This piece also aims to encourage people to seek professional help when things become unmanageable, knowing that people will support and help you.
