we all believe in you (2019)

synopsis

We All Believe in You started as a portrait project created by photographer Blake Loates, and in the short span of two years grew into a peer support group for folks living with mental illness that not only saves lives, but is constantly working to create real systemic change in how we approach, treat, and speak about mental illness. This is the story of how We All Believe in You (WABIY) started, and the journey both Blake and some of its members have been on.
