8 Mental Health Artists On Instagram Who Will Make You Feel 1000% Better With Their Illustrations

    Making life easier, one post at a time.

    The past two years have been a complete roller-coaster ride for most people, including myself, and they certainly have been detrimental to my mental health. After being in front of a screen, practically all day — right from watching YouTube videos and endlessly scrolling through Instagram Reels, to even simply typing out stuff for work — I decided to make this space a bit more healthy for myself.

    Although it is now being touted as an ad space, Instagram is actually a pretty great place for discovering artists and creative accounts. Their work, particularly on mental health, has become a respite for me, especially when the platform gets a bit too overwhelming with the constant life updates and travel videos.

    Here are 8 artists whose work you should look up in order to give yourself a nice, relaxing break, while also to help yourself acknowledge why you are feeling the way you are.

    Don't forget to give them a follow if you like their work! 💯
