ABOUT

Snap the Stigma is an engagement project developed for the entire NDSU campus community do de-stigmatize and humanize issues related to mental illness.

Statistically, one in four adults from 18 to 24 years old are identified as having some form of mental illness.

Snap the Stigma project began as an innovative research initiative organized by two NDSU Professors of Pharmacy Practs: Dr. Amy Werremeyer and Dr. Elizabeth Skoy. In their initial project, they used Photovoice as a means to capture the experience of college students living with mental illness. It’s an established research methodology where participants photograph their everyday realities and experiences and use photography along with personal reflections to communicate their experiences with others.

In 2016, the two professors sought to expand their project and mission so that many others could share their story.
