34 Mental Health Innovations

From Depression Awareness Bakeries to Mood Walls

— January 31, 2014 — Lifestyle
In previous years, mental health was brushed under the rug, but in the modern day mental health innovations have shone a much brighter light on it. Mental health is no longer something to be scoffed at or ignored and the world is taking notice quickly.

With events like Bell Let’s Talk helping to raise money and awareness for those suffering in silence, it brings to mind many other things putting the light on mental illness. The art world has taken notice and you can often find the concept of human vulnerability in many art pieces, not to mention the electronic industry.

There are now gadgets that will monitor the emotional state of the wearer at any given time to give them a report on their own feelings. With so many mental health innovations around, the world should be in decent shape going forward.
