Recorded levels of anxiety related disorders in 18 - 34 year olds is at its highest ever. We need to ask - are we really the most mentally ill generation? Or have medical advancements and psychological research enabled an increase in diagnosis? An extensive range of issues  such as stress over education, money, careers ad social issuesthat all affect mental health. However Millenials are also slightly obsessed with labels and self diagnosing their less favourable personality traits which could also affect the way mental illnesses are perceived in society. This image depicts the raw emotion of a panic attack in an attempt to help suffers feel more comfortable talking about it after seeing it in a public setting.
