Selection from <a href="/people/yviejohnson/collections/892018-mental-health">Mental Health</a> View Full Collection

Hello, I’m an illustration student on sabbatical, mother-of-three and garden variety adventurer. I create pieces to sell with 100% profits going to my stated charity of the year, which is currently Young Minds UK, the mental health charity for children and young people.

2016 I adventured for 79 days, running the length of Britain twice to fight mental health stigma and show that you can achieve extraordinary feats even with a mental illness diagnosis. I’ve created designs and shared my photography to reflect this #FierceMind challenge, having been inspired by some of the people and situations I came across on the running journey.

In 2018 I will be adventuring around Wales, still managing my own condition whilst training and challenging myself to take on five different multi-sport endurance events. Take a look at the #Challenge5Alive related merchandise designs which reflect these new challenges, with references to locations around Wales, its inspirational people and its beautiful language.

Hopefully they’ll make you smile! x
