“Photography has been one of the best things I have ever done for my mental health. It helped me get through the empty nest syndrome, the passing of my Mother and also has helped me process and make sense of past childhood trauma. It’s a tool widely overlooked that deserves more awareness.” — Melanie Hood

A direct benefit is seeing others overcome their challenges and feeling hope and support for my own.” — Kelly Milne


I applaud what you all are doing. At my lowest point in life I found photography. The changes it made and is making in my life brought me out of a very dark place; gives me new perspective and provides a more positive outlook on life and events around me. I know it healed my mind, and I encourage you to keep this going. Glad to see others are finding what I found in photography!” — Will Smith

I don’t feel alone anymore. I feel free and finally have the support I need to move on and recover.” — Member of The One Project

“In April of this year, when I learned of The One Project, I was particularly inspired by Bryce Evans’ recommendation, “If you find yourself in darkness, the first thing to do is find and start capturing the light.” Since that time, I have conscientiously tried to Seek, Capture and Share light and goodness by photographing and sharing positive, uplifting and enlightening images, whether they capture the awesome grandeur of the rising sun or the exuberant joy of a child’s face. As I do so, I find my own spirit is enlightened and lifted upwards from oppressive darkness into glorious light. Thank you to The One Project for being such a positive influence in my life.“ — Mark Dixon


“Aside from helping people find their way through depression and anxiety with the click of a shutter, the One Project also aims to build a better understanding of mental illness.” — Gail Johnson

“[It’s] the encouragement to share my struggles and stories.” — Brenden Zapotichny
