The Humanology Project (THP)
The Humanology Project (THP) , founded by WISE student Neha Kinariwalla is dedicated to the reduction of stigma surrounding mental and neurological illness.
Founded in 2013, the project sought to fill a gap in existing mental health advocacy by providing a platform of communication of science and narratives for patients and caregivers alike. The dissemination of scientific research pertaining to mental health serves as a vehicle for normalizing mental health in the media.
Blogs are written by a team of interdisciplinary writers. The addition of the Share Your Story” component lent itself to additional student involvement. Students interview volunteers and share their stories on the website.
