About Our Research:

The NMMH Project extends from the work of two researchers, Alexandra P. Orlandi and Paul M. Piwko at Assumption University in Worcester, Massachusetts. Piwko teaches at the College and Orlandi is a 2019 Psychology graduate. Together they received a summer research fellowship in 2018. Their research: 

  1. investigates a nascent trend – the use of exhibits, in museums and other settings, to develop mental health literacy and to advance societal attitudes about, and understanding of, mental health and wellness

  2. develops collaborative operating and business models that are capable of extending the above-described trend nationally

 

The NMMH Project seeks to “broadcast and communicate” the above research, as well as the research and exhibit-development innovations of others.
