This project works to eliminate the stigma of mental illness by highlighting 8-10 adults from very diverse backgrounds living with a mental health diagnosis. 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 very unique perspectives. Alongside the storytelling component each participant has been photographed by Whitbeck to create an exhibit of portraits which give the audience an intimate look at the diverse and beautiful faces of people living in the midst of mental health diagnoses.  The exhibit will open, accompanied by the live performances, at the Crossroads Art Center on Friday, May 19th at 7 pm in conjunction with their bi-monthly Open House and Artist Reception.
