Collected Layers

Documenting Society's Response to Mental Health
Collected Layers started as an audio project titled “Doming Out.” A term John Tessitore and John Kelly used to bring light to their sometimes dark battles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Both found comfort in conversation and expressing their energy to try and help others. Last June we changed the name of the podcast and blog to Collected Layers, a name that not only had special meaning to Mike and John, but encapsulated the diverse nature of all the experiences we were helping to share. It's turned into a project that has shed light on the power of openness and the role each and every story can play in the mental health movement. Whether you're suffering from a diagnosed mental health complication or not, society's response to our thoughts, feelings and actions have layered a heavy stigma over talking about out mental health. The more experiences we can share, the more we can all relate, and ideally, feel less alone.
