On the occasion of the 46th National Conference of the Italian Psychiatry Association and in conjunction with the World Mental Health Day 2012, the photography exhibition from SDN photographers "Invisible Solitudes - Life at the Edge of Mental Health" aims at putting a face onto the faceted nature of mental illness in different parts of the world.
The exhibition is a selection of thirty photographs by six professional photographers, published on SocialDocumentary.net. The stories selected present an intimate look at psychological suffering and how it expresses itself according to different socio-cultural contexts. At the same time, they aim to denounce the causes of such suffering, as well as the ignorance and the silence surrounding it.
