TESTIMONIALS

  • "By not merely acknowledging my deepest insecurities, but also publicly sharing them at the United Nations, of all the places in the world, I began to accept them. I became more open with my mentors and friends and ended up creating an amazing circle of support based on genuine human connection."

  • "Listening to veterans' stories is literally a way to consciously share the burden of war with the warriors. I know because through TMI Project, the people in my community listened, and shared the burden of Vietnam with me."

  • "I don't want the mental illness to rule my life anymore; I want to be free: Free from that which has controlled me. I truly believe that I would have sought help sooner had I heard someone relate a story similar to mine. So I read my story at the performance, and I will continue to read it if people ask me."

Areas of Focus

WRITING AND PERFORMANCE

writing-icon

 True stories told by the people who lived them. Our instructors help participants produce compelling, highly personal monologues and essays through exercises and feedback in a safe space, followed by hands-on editing.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Mental illness often has a stigma associated with it that prevents those who suffer to get the help they need. Discover how telling true stories to live audiences with the help of TMI Project and The Mental Health Association of Ulster County helps people cope and heal.

EDUCATION

With the help of TMI Project, students come to understand one another through hearing each other’s stories. Walls are often broken down between “cliques.” As a result of increased compassion and a deeper understanding of one another, bullying decreases.

ACTIVISM

Twelve feminists from around the world met in upstate New York in September 2014. They gathered to pilot TMI Project’s methodology for Gender at Work and to unearth and tell their own stories. This video is a testimony to the power of the personal story.
