2ND PLACE MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS T-SHIRT CONTEST WINNER
Inspiration for "FOCUS" T-Shirt
by Clarence Jones, III
This is a call to action. Mental Illness is a complex condition. In today's society it is not only important to tackle the issue of mental illness, but to address it with a message of hope and faith. The inspiration to create the shirt was inspired by several hospital visits, therapy sessions, & medications that I had to go to and undertake. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in the winter of 2011 and have been fighting it ever since.
The three stripes represents the progression of what my family had to undertake after I was admitted to those medical institutions to get better. The circle represents the amount of prayer. The camo represents my aggressive side and how I go about tackling the illness and treating it as soon as I see some type of change in how it is working. Through my tenacity I’m able to deal with the illness at rapid rate.
