The National Museum of Mental Health Project researches the use of exhibits to transform society's attitudes about, and understanding of, mental health.
The Project seeks to:
Share research related to exhibits about mental health and wellness.
Facilitate collaboration among artists, curators, exhibit designers, mental health professionals, people with lived experience, and others who seek to share knowledge.
Inspire the development of a national museum of mental health that is a museum-without-walls. This may take the form of a new nonprofit entity, or emerge organically from vigorous collaboration and sharing of know-how.
The Project extends from a research fellowship at Assumption College.
