I Am More: Facing Stigma serves as an attempt to erase the stigma that surrounds mental illness by expanding our perceptions and challenging expectations of what mental illness “looks like”.
The courageous models in this exhibit are more than their depression, their anxiety, their eating disorder, their post-traumatic stress disorder, or being a suicide survivor. They are musicians, artists, nature lovers, parents, and friends; and they are all Facing Stigma. These evocative images of real and beautiful humans will move people passing by to see themselves, their friends and loved ones and march us one step closer to the change that MUST happen. Together we can gather, talk and erase the stigma of mental illness.
