Snap It Photovoice
The Snap It Photovoice project was developed by Focus on Recovery - United, Inc. through funding by the 2007 Campaign for Mental Health Recovery state implementation awards.
The goals of Snap It project are to bring together image making, spoken word, performance, and storytelling as to way to restory stereotypical views of behavioral health and to increase awareness and decrease social exclusion in the state of Connecticut. Twenty young people from urban and rural locations in Connecticut, ages 18-25, in recovery from mental illness (receiving behavioral health services) will be involved in creating photographs and narratives around their experiences and then charged with developing 4 multimedia events/spoke word performances to be presented throughout 4 regions in Connecticut. These narratives, photographs and other materials will then be made available on DVDs to further promote awareness and decrease stigma among young people and the general public.
