The One Project is the first photography community for depression and anxiety.
We teach and promote therapeutic photography as a tool to learn, heal & grow towards becoming your most authentic self. Our techniques make it easier to explore, process and start to express the thoughts, emotions, and experiences related to depression and anxiety.
You will be able to learn the techniques through online courses, sharing your story, and connecting with others to help reduce the weight and pressure of what you’re going through.
Currently, our goal is to become the top photography websites for people suffering from depression and anxiety with our fast-growing community by teaching and spreading awareness of therapeutic photography.
Our Mission: Change How We See And Talk About Depression and Anxiety
We’re building The One Project together and we will be honest and transparent about our process and journey with you. This is our grand plan in four main stages to build an empowering community for people suffering from depression and anxiety, disrupt the mental health sector and teach the world the healing power of therapeutic photography.
- Develop strong community and establish sustainability through educational products and services helping people learn therapeutic photography (the healing power of photography) — our current stage.
- Grow our community and become the hub for people suffering from depression and anxiety with over 100 million active users.
- Create new system (web and mobile app) to improve the experience for our members and solidify their learning and use of therapeutic photography.
- Establish strategic partnerships with mental health organizations, professionals and researchers to provide a direct connection to the community and give our members direct access to their services, while crowdsourcing data for research to help change how we see and talk about depression and anxiety.

Holistic Health & Self
We believe in proactive, natural methods of achieving personal wellness. Health is holistic — the body, mind and spirit are connected and systems of tools are needed to maintain proper health.
Purpose Over Profit
We believe in listening to the ‘inner voice’ — finding meaning in the work you do — and putting purpose first. The One Project has been carefully crafted as an organization over 5 years to allow us to maximize our impact, while also allowing no barriers to access. We will utilize our growth as a way to give back further to communities in need.
Free, Creative Expression
We believe in open creative expression as a means of communication and connection — and the importance of having a safe space free from judgement to express your thoughts, feelings and stories.
Be Open To Yourself & Others
We believe in finding answers within, through introspection, and the power of sharing insights with others openly, honestly and with the intention of helping. Through sharing our vulnerable, genuine humanity we are inviting and allowing others to do the same — becoming our authentic selves. As an organization, we strive to maintain an open conversation with our members by being transparent in our intentions, activities, and direction.
