Welcome to the Unmasked page where I will share with you a project close to my heart.
Unmasked is a collection of photographs of people holding up a sign with what mental health illness they live with. Simple and to the point. Photography is a good way of sharing our experiences by ‘coming out’ about our mental health experiences, teaching others about mental health and not to be afraid of talking about it.
The video below explains it best (click on the link below to open a new window)
“Photographs are footprints of our minds, mirrors of our lives, reflections from our hearts, frozen memories that we can hold in silent stillness in our hands — forever if we wish. They document not only where we have been, but also point the way to where we might perhaps be heading, whether or not we realize this yet ourselves…”
Judy Weiser, R.Psych., A.T.R, Founder/Director of the PhotoTherapy Centre
See comment from Judy Weiser, sharing the Unmasked project with her groups on facebook.
If you would like to join the project, you can submit a photo and write up on the facebook page, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
It takes a lot of courage to Unmask and if you suffer with a mental health illness, please know that you are doing great. ❤
