The Process of Development and Analysis of a Photovoice Mental Health Intervention


The photovoice approach was originally developed as a community action research tool to allow marginalized communities to communicate their needs to policymakers through photography and narrative. The present research involved the adaptation of photovoice as a clinical intervention to foster recovery and mental wellness among people with serious mental illnesses—the Recovery Narrative Photovoice intervention. A unique mixed-methods approach was utilized to analyze the visual and narrative data created by participants in this intervention. This process yielded rich, qualitative data from the participants' photovoice works and allowed for the generation of new research ideas to benefit the community.
