Mental Illness Plushies Start A Conversation About Mental Health
At first glance, the idea of mental illness plushies doesn’t sound particularly appetizing. However, as Emily Monaghan of the UK discovered, such things are great conversation starters about mental health, which is an increasingly important issue in today’s world.
Working together with artist Toby Allen, she has helped bring his impressive ‘Real Monsters’ series to life. Coming in a range of mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and others, each design is wonderfully unique and made from high quality luxury faux-fur and minky. Additionally, if you can’t afford a plushie then you can get a knit pattern to make your very own!
