I Am More: Facing Stigma​

Display period: 2018-current (multiple locations)


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 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 University.
