Sonaksha Iyengar's illustrations take on mental illness on Instagram

A 22-year-old writer and illustrator is trying to get people talking about mental illness, one letter of the alphabet at a time.

Sonaksha Iyengar's illustrations, posted under the hashtag #atozofmentalhealth, take on a variety of mental illnesses, like anxiety, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, narcolepsy and more.

Each piece, posted to her Instagram account here, is designed around one letter of the alphabet as part of the #36daysoftype project on Instagram.
