It’s All In My Head is a multimedia project that explores the coping mechanisms of survivors of terrorism and violent conflict by using layered portraits of the things they do to help themselves move forward or, otherwise. The project aims to advocate for increased access to psychosocial support for the survivors, which in turn will improve their mental health. In the last twenty years, Nigeria has witnessed an increase in terrorism and violent conflicts.

Some of these survivors have witnessed the most violent acts that have been meted out on them and their loved ones, and in some cases on all the things that they own. It is interesting to know that while these survivors may find a way to rebuild and adjust to their new lives, many of them never get to talk about their experiences. Therefore, the idea of moving on may be considered a charade as they feel stuck in the past while trying to start over. Exploring the coping mechanisms of these people offers insight as to how these survivors struggle to move on despite little or no psychosocial support.
