How do you define a mental health issue? What does it mean to be normal in today’s society, and what are the implications for those who don’t fit that mold? The Exploratorium, a museum of science, art, and human perception in San Francisco, is exploring the issue in a new exhibit called “The Changing Face of What Is Normal.” Launching in April 2013, it analyzes how we define, categorize, and treat those who fall outside conceptions of normal behavior. Host Shannon Eliot chats with Exploratorium Project Director Hugh McDonald and artist Pamela Winfrey about the goals of this groundreaking exhibit and what visitors can expect.
We are innovators who continue to overcome adversity and defy the status quo. We offer new solutions for wellness and lead by example that mental health recovery is possible.
