Deconstructing Stigma

McLean’s international public awareness campaign is more than a series of larger-than-life photographs of people affected by mental illness. Each story is told through the eyes of the campaign’s participants as they boldly tear down the misconceptions of mental health. Not statistics or nameless faces, the volunteers in this project are everyday people—just like you.
