Animation for Mental Health
Helping you become the person you always should have been.
A well-being resource for everyone
Quint & James formed Cool Relationships in 2020, during an upswing in mental health problems in the pandemic. Cool Relationships uses short, engaging animations to help explain common conditions, such as anxiety and depression, anger, trauma, and addiction.
Cool Relationships is free well-being resource for everyone – ‘as you become the person you always should have been.’
We are born in a relationship with our mothers, parents and care-givers. Our individuality only emerges in our relationships with family, friends, and wider society – and ultimately to all humanity, and the planet which sustains us.
We can all aspire to cool relationships at every level.
