What sets us apart and why you should join

The One Project is a grassroots social enterprise that’s evolved over almost 10 years from a mental health photography project. We’ve learned a lot through many mentors, experts, and members of our community along with established research on how we can change the conversation around mental health. Our goal it to provide a safe, caring space online in our mental health apps that focus on therapeutic photography and building a library of mental health stories and insights.

Many of our members have expressed that our community provided them with one of the first times they’ve felt truly accepted, supported or encouraged to start talking and get support for their mental health. Our #1 priority is fostering a strong online community that also gives exciting opportunities for our members using our unique expertise through exhibitions, articles, art installations, campaigns and more around the world. As we grow, we’ll connect our members more both online and in-person.

What our members say

Exceeds my expectations by far! I’m so, so excited about this new app The One Project has to offer. It gives me the opportunity to share and get feedback instantly when the thoughts are fresh on my mind. For me, this means a lot. I feel it’s like an ongoing discussion that you can join the moment you open your app.”

Peter Engberg

“In my mind $10 per month is an absolute bargain for access to do what I already enjoy, taking pictures, with a new technique that fosters personal growth and healing at the same time.”

Steve Nelson

“I'm grateful for this community. I've only been here for a few days, yet I feel much more loved and appreciated than ever.

Member of The One ProjectAsked for Anonymity

I am SUPER impressed with how professional everything looks! It's really inviting!”

Christina Graves

“I suffer from depression. Until now, I've never said that out loud. I have spent years and years trying to hide from the stigma that comes with being depressed, too embarrassed to ask for help and too anxious to feel like anyone would listen. I don't know when the exact moment was, but I was flipping through The One Project website and it hit me like a train. I don't have to feel this way. And I don't have to do this alone.

Molly Mitchell

“It's a brilliant community to be part. it has really helped me a lot and couldn't recommend it enough. ❤️”

Shannen Woods

Photography has been one of the best things I have ever done for my mental health. It helped me get through the empty nest syndrome, the passing of my Mother and also has helped me process and make sense of past childhood trauma. It’s a tool widely overlooked that deserves more awareness.”

Melanie Hood

“This community encourages everyone to explore their challenges with mental illness using photography, a tool which allows us to reflect and share in a very meaningful way, even when words aren’t available.

I’ve just recently started sharing in The One Project but I’m already seeing the support of the community, through their respectful and warm feedback.

Bar Perry

“After posting my first story, I was blown away by the immediate support from the community and Bryce himself. It just quickly felt like a safe environment to share emotions and feelings. During the course, I learned more about the power of photography and learned new ways to express myself through my photographs. I feel that now I am really able to use photographs as a therapeutic tool.”

Maria Cooks

“I am one of the earliest pioneers of the techniques of “PhotoTherapy” and “Therapeutic Photography” (using personal photographs and photo-taking as tools to improve therapy process, increase personal well-being, or create positive social change).

Photography can be a very powerful means of confronting problems and providing a way to overcome and survive them. Bryce Evans has started a vital conversation, using photography as his language for activating that dialogue.”

Judy WeiserR.Psych., A.T.R., Founder/Director of the PhotoTherapy Centre

“The One Project helped me get back on my feet after a couple of very rough life events. The things that I learned in this course [Build Your One Project] turned into a series of books that I’ve published. I constantly use the techniques on a daily basis in my practice as a portrait photographer and couldn’t describe this any better than; “The One Project saved my life”.

Jelani Woods

I am thrilled to be a member of this community. Bryce has created an incredible platform for people to be able to discuss, talk and open up regarding their stories regarding mental health.

I have been able to share some of my experiences within the community, and it is exciting to see how the conversation around mental health grows and transforms.”

Jesse DeLisle

“This course [Build Your One Project] is very effective in dealing with a very serious topic.

This is well worth the price!

Dr. Bob Nolley

I don’t feel alone anymore. I feel free and finally have the support I need to move on and recover.”

Member (asked for anonymity)

“I find my own spirit is enlightened and lifted upwards from oppressive darkness into glorious light. Thank you to The One Project for being such a positive influence in my life.

Mark Dixon

“Photography has helped my mental well-being more than any medicine could, but I was reluctant to share my photos and thoughts. The One Project gave me a place to do both and connect with others of similar interest and struggles.”

Aaron Rouselle

“Love the app. I am happy to support you and The One Project.
An investment in hope.

Sue Hitchcock

I've enjoyed being part of the community of The One Project. Being able to comfortably share my stories with those in the group, and know that we're all sharing stories of mental health, and it's relation to photography. It's great to be part of the movement to break down the stigmas surrounding mental health, and how photography can be used to heal.”

Braydon Anthony John Chapelas

“I'm so grateful for this community... I've never felt so welcomed or comfortable with a group before.
