Beautiful Distress was founded on the concept that there is a great deal of mental suffering, that not enough people are aware of this and that not enough is done to stop it.The Foundation uses art in an attempt to open up the world of psychiatry and battle the stigma attached to it.
Why art? Beautiful Distress believes that art is pre-eminently capable of articulating and depicting the human condition.
