Why We Do ItHow We Do ItOur Impact/HistoryOur Studio

After nearly two decades, the Athens Photo Project continues to raise the profile of art within the realm of behavioral healthcare. We provide resources so individuals living with mental health challenges can build identity, confidence and hope through the arts.

Using the medium of photography, we integrate:

  • art learning
  • self expression
  • peer support
  • social inclusion

With a range of research peers, we deliberately work to improve mental health support in Southeast Ohio, while acting as a model for other communities.

We also strive to help other areas develop their own programs.
