Here’s a photo for The Inlander​ story about the North Idaho Crisis Center. Short of an emergency room situation, those seeking a sanctuary from their battles with mental health issues or the homeless can stay at the crisis center for under 24 hours. Here, they can take a shower, eat and get a little sleep. They can also receive a diagnostic health examination and discuss mental health issues. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/an-eye-for-every-storm/Content?oid=2676987

“Inside Out Project” In Spokane

Volunteer Jose Villa pastes a photograph of Isamu Jordan onto a wall during installation of "Maddness", a local exhibition of "Inside Out", to address the stigma of mental health, at Boots Bakery & Lounge, in Spokane, Wash., Sunday, April 13, 2014. "Inside Out" is the brainchild of artist JR, who invited other artists to create their own exhibits. The local exhibition was inspired by local artist Isamu Jordan, who committed suicide, September 5, 2013. 18 portraits, mostly taken by local photographer Jed Conklin, will be on indefinite display at the eatery.

I photographed the local installation of the “Inside Out Project”, which addresses the stigmas associated with mental illness, for the Inlander. Portraits are taken of people who are directly affected by mental illness, mental health professionals and people who support those who struggle through mental illness.
