This is a project to encourage participants in CareLink Community Support Services programs to describe their lives in terms of pictures that they take in their communities. These pictures may represent their past, their present and/or their future. The photo voice project gives to individuals living with a mental illness a visual way in which they might record and catalyze change in themselves and their communities. Using art therapy techniques that highlight the use of photography, the participants will be given digital cameras, instructions on the use of the camera, and then encouraged to take photos that are visual expressions of their thoughts and lives. They will select the pictures they think most represent their lived experiences. Accompanying the photos will be the photographers’ narrative of each photo’s meaning in their life story.
