“Hello, I’m Brain!

I was created to represent the individual, the person who is determined to ensure that Silly Heads carry labels, not the person. I tell a story through the eyes of one of the founders, who has been through lots of ups and downs with mental illness, stigma, and learning how to manage his own Silly Heads.

The other characters you see me interacting with are the Silly Heads, meaning the burden of being labelled, judged, and shamed is put on their shoulders and not on mine, which is the way it should be.

By holding these Silly Heads accountable for their actions and learning how to manage them in my daily life, I’m free to strive towards my goals, re-discovering my abilities along the way.

You will get to meet my Silly Heads as you navigate through this site and our social media platforms. When they introduce themselves, as they do, note that I or nobody else will never be defined by their silly heads. Talk soon”.

Meet Da Silly Heads

Da Silly Heads were created in 2018 on the back an envelope in a bid to create representations of our diagnosis and experiences through mental illness. Four Silly Heads represent Anxiety, Depression, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), and Bipolar Mood disorder, with the fifth character, brain, representing us, you, the individual fighting back against a silly head. They not only tell our story in a very engaging way but, now carry the labels often attached to us as individuals living or experiencing a mental health condition.
