Markell Price – Dehumanizing People with Mental Illness through Stigmas

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Coco James

Artist’s Statement: Stigmas created from our society surrounding people faced with a mental illness causes a prejudice conception and therefore leading to a perceived loss of humanness. Those who experience life with a mental illness have all their own person challenges and daily battles with their illness. Stigmas bring a whole other burden on their shoulders and cause even more damage. Through my art, I wanted to bring awareness and realization to the impact’s stigmas create. Stigmas get inside these individual’s heads while the impacts of the illness itself surrounds them heavily. Taking into account the impacts stigmas hold, moving forward society needs to step away from stigmas and avoid them at all costs to help relieve the burden stigmas create.
