"A Lens Into Our Lives"
A Project of Waverley Place, the Community Program of McLean Hospital
Photovoice is a public research process that gives cameras to people
who have been disempowered, to take photographs of their
communities. These photos are narrated with the goals of promoting
critical dialogue and knowledge of personal and community issues
and to promote possible solutions to policy makers.
The exhibit was created as part of a “peer-led anti-stigma program”
which was implemented at Waverley Place and was developed by the
Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation at Boston Univ.
