This Is My Brave: Photovoice 2023
Mental Health Students/Faculty
University of South Florida
Photovoice is a participatory action research method that engages community stakeholders to photograph areas of strength and concern related to a health issue and then critically analyze in focus-group discussion how and why the health concern persists in their community, toward the goal of co-identifying opportunities for change and health improvement. For the Brave Takes project in conjunction with the This Is My Brave 2023 show on the USF campus, we are applying the Photovoice method to bring stories of mental illness and addiction into focus and to the attention of our campus community. The mission of Brave Takes is to empower USF students as well as faculty and staff to share their personal stories of recovery and visions for change while controlling their level of disclosure of their identity in public.

Wang C, Burris MA. Photovoice: Concept, Methodology, and Use for Participatory Needs Assessment. Health Education & Behavior. 1997;24(3):369-387.
Photovoice is a process by which people can identify, represent, and enhance their community through a specific photographic technique. As a practice based in the production of knowledge, photovoice has three main goals: (1) to enable people to record and reflect their community's strengths and concerns, (2) to promote critical dialogue and knowledge about important issues through large and small group discussion of photographs, and (3) to reach policymakers. Applying photovoice to public health promotion, the authors describe the methodology and analyze its value for participatory needs assessment. They discuss the development of the photovoice concept, advantages and disadvantages, key elements, participatory analysis, materials and resources, and implications for practice.
