Welcome to Portraits of Mental Wellness. If you’re new to the project, learn a little more about us.
The project is moving along very well thanks to our skilled and dedicated team pouring their time, skills, heart, and personal resources into it. Thank you for your on-going support.
So far 24 people have agreed to participate in the project and we are well into the photography. We are excited to welcome more participants, men in particular. We have found that the stigma of mental illness is even greater for men and it seems that there are few male role models when it comes to mental health recovery. If you are a man and would like to share the story of your successes, please email us. You could be a big inspiration to younger men dealing with those same struggles.
How can you help?
