Chicago—Artists with personal experience of mental illness displayed their work at the annual meeting of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) here last month.

The display was coordinated by the Awakenings Project, founded by Robert Lundin of Glen Ellyn, Ill. The Awakenings Project seeks "to raise public awareness of the creative talents of people living with mental illness and to enhance and promote those talents."

The 4-day NAMI meeting drew 3200 participants, including 600 persons who had been treated for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and other severe mental illnesses, along with members of their families.
