Brand new to Stomp the Stigma this year, Expressions is an art exhibition intended to illustrate the reality of mental health struggles, substance use disorder, and recovery.  

Often, when people share their story of living with addiction, pain, and trauma, they struggle to be understood, heard, or taken seriously. Expressions seeks to shine a light on those who typically suffer in darkness, through artistic collaboration and deconstruction.  

When words fail us, art speaks.

- Rachel Wilkins
