#IfYouCouldSeeMe

Local Artists Working to Eliminate Stigma of Mental Illness

 

#IfYouCouldSeeMe is a multi-media project that looks past labels and surface judgments to see real, diverse, fascinating people living with mental health diagnoses. They are mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, friends, artists, activists, veterans, and, above all, human beings with whole lives not defined by their diagnoses. Creator Erin Mahone builds on the success of the "It Runs in the Family" series, adding the talents of photographer Dean Whitbeck to empower people to tell their own stories.

 

This project works to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. These individuals have participated in a series of meetings with Mahone to create individual performance pieces that express the idea of “If You Could See Me” from each of their unique perspectives. Alongside the storytelling component, each participant has been photographed by Whitbeck to create an exhibit of portraits which give an intimate look at the faces of people living in the midst of mental health diagnoses. The exhibit is accompanied by the live performances at the May 19 Crossroads Open House + Artist Reception.
