Photovoice Presents: Spirituality in Recovery

In 2011, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS), Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) created their own “Storytelling Program” that emphasizes the use of personal stories as a means to draw communal attention to mental health and wellness. 

Participants are asked to share their stories through words, photos, drawings, personal mementos, and even music. The stories shared are both personal and powerful. For some, they’ve created a sense of connection, and for others, they’ve been transforming.

For two days, Photovoice is collaborating with the Spirituality Initiative for the event Spirituality In Recovery. The Spirituality Initiative is one of seven Health Equity Initiatives in San Mateo County. They work to build opportunities for community members to explore, increase awareness of, and support spirituality and its relationship to health and well-being.
