Impact Upon Exhibition Trend:

I Am More is a compelling example of how increased awareness of the mental health exhibition trend can create a domino effect. Inspired by Deconstructing Stigma, this is the first mental health exhibition created by a mental health advocacy organization whose primary focus is upon eliminating stigma. The Yellow Tulip Project was founded by high school student Julia Hansen whose messages “Hope Happens” and “It is O.K. to not be O.K.” have evolved from her award-winning Ted talk. I Am More’s placement at Logan Airport’s international terminal serves as an example of how a relatively small nonprofit can create global impact with a mental health exhibition.

The National Museum of Mental Health Project, Inc. is a nonprofit organization and “museum without walls” that researches and creates exhibitions that can transform society’s attitudes about, and understanding of, mental health. Through the development of online exhibits, NMMHP does what museums do best – educate, interpret, advance dialogue, and develop literacy on the topic of mental health. 


The Project seeks to:

  • Develop and display exhibitions by facilitating collaboration among artists, curators, mental health professionals, people with lived experience, and others who seek to share talents and knowledge.

  • Share research related to exhibits about mental health and wellness.

  • Build alliances with community, local, and national not-for-profit, for-profit, governmental, and educational entities who are similarly interested in creating positive mental health outcomes.

  • Develop a national museum of mental health.

The Project extends from a research fellowship at Assumption University.
