The purpose of this study is to understand and promote awareness of the mental health experiences of adults 50 years of age and older who live in a rural community. This study uses photovoice, a research and advocacy method that helps people to tell their stories with photos. Participants will determine what types of experiences (e.g., stigma, resilience) will be explored by taking photos. After attending a photovoice workshop, participants will take their photos. Individual interviews about the most meaningful photos (chosen by the participant) will be used to gain insight into the participants experiences. Transcripts of the interviews will be analyzed inductively using constant comparison, such that themes will be analyzed and coded as they emerge. The participants will determine collaboratively how the findings should be presented (i.e., knowledge translation activities). Possible activities include a community gallery night and a summary report for community members.
