Nothing to Hide

Mental Illness in the Family

From Family Diversity Projects

This photo-text exhibit presents photographs taken by Gigi Kaeser and interviews conducted by Jean Beard and Peggy Gillespie, with families whose lives are affected by schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, major depression, anxiety disorders, and other brain disorders. The photos and text in this exhibit dispel harmful stereotypes, misconceptions, and myths about mental illness.

These compelling accounts demonstrate strength, courage, integrity, and accomplishment in the face of adversity and stigma — giving people living with mental illness and their families an opportunity to come out of the shadows and into the public eye.

Participating Organizations: ADRC, Common Threads, Family Diversity Projects, Journey Mental Health. DAIS, Green Bandana Project, NAMI Dane County, Resilient Wisconsin, Safe Communities, Verona Senior Center, Women in Recovery, Individual Testimonials, and more!
