Clackamas County Arts Alliance is partnering with Clackamas County Behavioral Health on an important photography project with the goal of breaking down the stigma around suicide.

These portraits are the result of a project that involved photography, filmmaking and the participant’s handwriting. Each participant’s personal experience with suicidal ideation and attempts, revealed during interviews, was essential to the artists’ work.
