Deconstructing Stigma: Changing Attitudes About Mental Health is an international mental health awareness exhibit currently on display at Boston Logan Airport. The installation covers the entire 235-hallway that connects Terminal B and C on the Departure level and features photos and stories from more than 30 campaign participants, with each photo standing nearly 8 feet tall.
They are musicians and librarians, fashion designers, fitness instructors, actors, athletes, and artists. They are sisters and wives, brothers and fathers, from New England and around the nation. What do they have in common? All have been affected by mental illness and its stigma and have been brought together as part of Deconstructing Stigma.
Millions of visitors have seen the exhibit since its installation in December 2016. In October 2019, the exhibit was refreshed with 36 new volunteers, including those from our NAACP and Mumbai partnerships.
Sean, one of the first campaign participants, stands with his story on display.
We are grateful to our collaboration with Boston Logan International Airport and the many staff members who have helped us to maintain the exhibit.
