Mental Disorders and art: Take a Short Survey (you can answer in comments!)

:iconthe-greys:
The-Greys Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just doing some science for fun. Some believe there's a correlation between mental illness and artists (Picasso, Van Gogh, etc.) and I'm curious. Even if you do not have a disorder you're welcome to participate! In fact, please do!

1. Have you been professionally diagnosed with a mental disorder?:
2. If so, what disorder?:
3. Are you currently being treated? (Therapy, medication, etc.):
4. How would you describe your art?:
5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?:


(If you do not have a disorder, please only answer questions 1 and 4.)

SURVEY EXAMPLE:

1. Have you been professionally diagnosed with a mental disorder?: Yes
2. If so, what disorder?: Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
3. Are you currently being treated? (Therapy, medication, etc.): Yes, therapy
4. How would you describe your art?: Digital fantasy drawings, fantasy creatures, cartoons, some fan art.
5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?: After treatment, it became easier to "branch out" and draw things out of my comfort zone.

(When referring to your disorder, please do not use acronyms. Example: "PTSD". Please write "Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder". Thanks!)

1. Have you been professionally diagnosed with a mental disorder?: yep
2. If so, what disorder?: ADHD and Auditory Processing delay
3. Are you currently being treated? (Therapy, medication, etc.): No. I stop doing Ritalin years ago, and auditory is just something i live with. Its just people have to repeat it a second time for me to hear. The Doctor had me tested before college for ADHD to see how well i was doing without ritlan, and he says I don't need my meds. I have the intellegence of a college student.
4. How would you describe your art?: Fine. I don't think it effects me, other then I can't do art for too long periods, but I have to take breaks.
5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?: I think so. I could be more patient with my art, and take more of my time even though I do it already.

2. If so, what disorder?: Anxiety, Depression.
3. Are you currently being treated? (Therapy, medication, etc.): I was medicated, but i'm off the meds now, i can't find anything that works, and ive actually been doing okay without it.
4. How would you describe your art?: ive been told that my style is a lot like the main artist that worked on Yellow Submarine, i forget his name. one of the best compliments ive ever gotten actually. but as far as how I would describe it, average, i guess.
5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?: I dont think so, but the way i work on it and view it definitely would be. right now, i tend to dismiss what i do as just a way to pass the time, its kind of hard to be passionate about it when ive got so many doubts holding me back. i think that if my mind were clear, i'd be able to push past those thoughts of "this is nothing special" and actually take some pride in my work. but as far as the art itself, that probably wouldnt change.

i tend to ramble a little, but i hope this was helpful.

2. If so, what disorder?: Depression and Anxiety
3. Are you currently being treated? (Therapy, medication, etc.): yes, taking medication and therapy. Sometimes neither seem to work, but it's difficult to tell personally
4. How would you describe your art?: cartoony/anime, nothing really special, sometimes too depressing, mostly mine and other people's characters.
5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?: Somewhat. I sometimes feel I draw better when I'm incredibly upset, which my depression makes worse. I don't enjoy it though. My disorder keeps me from having the will and confidence to get better and improve my art.

Yes

2. If so, what disorder?:
Autism, depression, and possibly schizophrenia. I am still being tested for the latter.

Yes. Medication, naturopathic medicines, and constantly undergoing treatment re-evaluation and modification.

4. How would you describe your art?:
Cartoon. Animal art.

5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?:
No. My disorder is what enabled me to draw, even though I did so obsessively, sometimes for 10 hours without a break.

3. Are you currently being treated? (Therapy, medication, etc.): Yes, I take two pills a day, Abilify and Zoloft
4. How would you describe your art?: For me, art was a way of putting my fantasy world on something more permanent. My fantasy world was my way to escape the darkness of depression and the harshness of the outer world, and drawing it was a way to make it more "real", in a way.
5. Do you feel your art would be different without your disorder?: I'm quite sensitive, so I think I'd still have my fantasy world and art without my disorders. I may not retreat to it as much as I have if I didn't have them though.

Yes, depression and severe bipolar disease. No, though I've tried medication and therapy in the past.


I draw anime-style characters, I write poetry and short-storied, and I am a photographer with focus on,nature & wildlife. My poetry is my outlet, it helps prevent self-harm and it gives my anger an outlet. If Idshy have my disorders, I don't know if I would be a writer. The other two things I do wouldn't be affected, however my photography is another outlet. It soothes me when I feel restless and anxious.

Ah, sure, but bear with me, English ain't my first language so it's a bit hard to explain fully what I mean with this. So, heh, sorry if it's a bit hard to understand or read @_@

So, I've visited the psychologist since the high school started on last Autumn because of my memory issues. I have problem to remember stuff I learn in school nowadays and I've noticed that I can't remember stuff from my past that I should remember. OR, I will remember some events very differently than they really were or not at all. This might be the thing that leads to the fact that I have problems with focusing on the teacher on some subjects even if I try my best to do so, and I don't understand clearly what people are telling me to do so they need to explain it few times and pretty much "open the case" more for me so I understand it (Basically explaining more for me than normally). The psychologist said that there might be some issues in my memory, it's a bit hard for me to explain exactly how because he explained this to me more with the pictures (which is the method I use in math - > high school math is pretty hard for me) And on the top of that I might have dyslexia.

Sit on just se etten yksinkertasesti ymmärrä selviäkään ohjeita tehtäviin ilman että joku selittää mulle tarkemmin niitä -> Vaikeuksia ymmärtää tekstinä annettua tehtävää esimerkiten.
Ollaan sen psykologin kanssa tästä jo jonkin aikaa puhuttu ja se on selittäny mulle tosiaan kuvien avulla että missä mun muistissa saattas olla jotain vikaa, mikä on sitten puolestaan hankala selittää tässä tekstinä.
