Grant Spotlight: Connecticut Historical Society | Common Struggle, Individual Experience: An Exhibition About Mental Health

November 2021 to October 2022
Tuesday through Friday, 12 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: One Elizabeth Street, Hartford

Understanding how people have struggled with mental health throughout history helps us support ourselves and each other today. Supported in part with both a $21,225 Planning Grant and a $35,000 Implementation Grant, this exhibition explores how society has sought and continues to seek care for the mind and mental health.

Letters, photographs, and other artifacts will help share the experiences of Connecticans from the past. Oral history interviews, recorded in 2020 and 2021, will share the perspectives of people today.
