About the Project

Writing Away the Stigma (WATS) is a series of free workshops and events for people who want to write about how mental illness has affected their lives. The goal of WATS is to help participants make a statement, showing the world (and, perhaps, themselves, too) that there is no shame in their experiences , and that people who suffer from mental illness can also survive and prosper. This is the third iteration of the project, and the first to work with teens. Learn more about the project, here.


The WATS Teens

Cayla Gancy // Hailey Bartlett // Jacob Volk // Jayanna Smith // Jason Johnson // Ceresa Morsaint // Juno Nascimento  // Bridget Van Houtem // Mona Indovina

The Writing Away the Stigma project was made possible by the Grable Foundation.
