Piecing Together Mental Illness

April 20 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Piecing Together Mental Illness
Presentation: 7–8pm
Reception: 8–9pm

EXHIBIT STATEMENT
What does it feel like to be sad? What does it feel like to worry? Chances are that you know how sadness and worry feel. But when do these experiences indicate mental illness? The answer to this question is not straightforward. Individual experiences of mental illness are incredibly diverse, processes of diagnoses are very complex, and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions for treatment.

At the middle of all of this complexity is a suffering human being who is often isolated and branded by social stigma as strange or dangerous.

Piecing Together Mental Illness explores aspects of diagnosis and treatment in mental illness with the hope that a clearer understanding of the complex challenges of experiencing, diagnosing, and treating mental illness will help us all see past social stigma to the individual person who is suffering.
