Miss You Most Photography Exhibit

About the Exhibit

As leaders in providing care for individuals living with mental illness and addiction, we know that few subjects are as difficult to discuss as suicide.

At St. Joe’s, we want to start a conversation that will increase awareness of suicide prevention and break down barriers to important resources that can save a life.

In keeping with our mission to reduce stigma and encourage proactive dialogue about difficult topics in mental health and addiction, St. Joe’s has helped create an inspiring photography exhibit in partnership with www.leftbehindbysuicide.org.

Photographer Scott Chisholm’s work focuses on capturing people who have experienced a suicide loss and sharing their stories by framing their own writings about loss and recovery along with stunning photographs.

These images challenge us to reconsider our perspectives on suicide loss, inspire us to ask difficult questions, and remind us how precious life is.

The Miss You Most photography exhibit is currently on display at the West 5th Campus of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. It is located on Level 0 in the corridor leading to the Medical Outpatient Clinics, and is open to viewing at any time, 7 days a week.
