Artist Juan Muniz of Ninobuni recently launched a Gofund Me campaign for his latest endeavor, “I’m Not Ok,” a book that focuses on starting the conversation to help fight the stigma and taboo that is constantly encountered with mental health illness.

“In any given year, approximately every 1 in 5  adults in the US experience a mental illness.   Suicide is the second leading cause of death between the ages of 10-24.  I believe that one of the most important ways to battle mental health illness is speaking up. “ Juan Muniz says.

”As a person who suffers from depression and anxiety, I created a book that focuses on starting the conversation to help fight the stigma and taboo that is constantly encountered, “ he added.

“The book, “I’m Not Ok,”  allows us to realize that we are not alone in our thoughts. These illustrations helped me as I created them based on the emotions I feel and go through on a daily basis.” Juan says,  “Creating these pieces of art along with the individual quotes can hopefully reach those who feel lost. “

As of this article publication the book’s Go fund me campaign has already managed to go past the halfway mark.

His previous work has been featured and highlighted in the Las Vegas Weekly, E-volved Magazine, and LA Weekly.
