Swedish Save The Children and the Tim Bergling Foundation want to help destigmatize discussions around mental health. Their joint campaign has partnered with a handful of Swedish artists, who will be replacing their album covers on Spotify with animated shorts that visualize children's emotions and anxiety.

Alesso, Tove Lo, Elliphant, and many more Swedish musicians will be participating over the next four weeks. The animated shorts—or Canvases—were created by Allen Laseter, Alva Skog, Parallel Teeth, Laura Hodkin and Dan Stankler and are based on stories children have shared about their mental health.

“Mental illness among young people is increasing, and even though this issue is covered regularly in the media, it is still very challenging to reach children with relevant information and support," says Helena Thybell, Secretary-General of Swedish Save the Children. "That is why it’s important for us to use a channel where children are – and show that no one is alone."
