Twice a year since 2012, TMI Project has offered 10-week memoir writing and true storytelling workshops specially tailored to meet the needs of the Mental Health Association in Ulster County’s population of adults with mental illness. Our partnership with this peer-based organization, is designed to destigmatize mental illness while empowering participants to work toward their recovery.

In 2016, a documentary entitled Vicarious Resilience was shot by North Guild Films and will be released later this year. The documentary follows eight participants as they went through our workshop, from the first session, where many expressed doubts and trepidation, to the final storytelling performance before an audience of over 100, and a final follow-up session where participants voiced the ways in which they experienced positive transformation.
