Powerful Photographs on Display on the LOB Concourse

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

\"photo\"A powerful and timely display of photos in the passage between the state Capitol and the Legislative Office Building highlights the discrimination faced by people with mental illness. In stark language, the people in the portraits describe the challenges they face when friends and co-workers learn about their diagnosis.

\"photo-1\"The exhibit is jointly sponsored by the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Advocacy Unlimited, an educational and advocacy group. It comes as the legislature is pondering major changes to the way mental health services are delivered in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    It is interesting to note that the pictures for the display were taken the morning of the Sandy Hook shootings before anything was known about what had happened. There were 28 deaths that day and countless victims. Speak up and be heard about discrimination.
