A nationally-traveling exhibit designed to reduce the stigma of mental illness
On display April 2019 through September 2019
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, New Hampshire
The 99 Faces Project seeks to break down the stigma associated with mental illness and to encourage those who are on their path to recovery, as well as their families. Using art as the vehicle, this unique project challenges commonly held assumptions about what someone living with symptoms of a mental illness looks like by presenting true-to-life images, and brings mental health into public view and public discussion.
The 99 Faces Project is brought to Dartmouth-Hitchcock by the D-H Arts and Humanities Program and is part of Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s broader commitment to addressing mental health in our communities.
