NJ TRANSIT has unveiled the third installation of the Out in the Open. In it Together public art project highlighting mental health issues at its Bay Street Station in Montclair. The installation, first shown at Newark Penn Station in October 2018, is presented in conjunction with the Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris (MHAEM) and intended to demonstrate mental illness can affect anyone and help is available.
Five large-scale photographic portraits of individuals impacted by mental illness are displayed along the walkway running over the Montclair-Boonton Line tracks to show that together, faces of hope and resilience are at the forefront of this issue.
“NJ TRANSIT is glad to partner with MHAEM on this very important project, highlighting that mental illness affects people of every age, gender and strata,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Kevin Corbett. “We are pleased to display these powerful images in our stations, and if we are able to help one person recognize the need for mental health assistance in themselves or a loved one, then the effort is a success.”
