Congrats Meryl Schenker!

It was an honor to judge this year's Passion Projects photojournalism grant for SPJ Western Washington alongside Sung Park and Gerry McCarthy, two fierce leaders in the field who I have admired for years. I'm thrilled that the grant will help fund Meryl's project exploring and humanizing the stories of prominent community members struggling with mental health issues. Mental health issues touches all of our lives in one way or another and yet the stigma and shame remains deafening. Projects like Meryl's can get us one step closer to understanding and supporting one another.
