GALLERY: 14 Faces of Mental Illness

My boss and workmates treated me with more instruction, as if I was more fragile than others. This caused me to feel stupid. -Tina Scott

Through our lens: personal stories of mental illness is an exhibition featuring photos of San Diegans with mental illness. There are two photos of each person: one a color portrait, the other a black-and-white image suggesting the strain of the societal stigma attached to mental illness. The captions in this gallery are excerpted from longer descriptions in the exhibition. Use the View Slideshow link above or read full story.
