Mental Health: MIND MATTERS

Saturday, January 29 through Sunday, April 10
Discovery Place Science

As the leading hub for science learning in the Carolinas, Discovery Place is proud to present Mental Health: MIND MATTERS and provide a safe space to hold important conversations that impact us on both a personal level and as a community.

The new special exhibition Mental Health: MIND MATTERS explores the stigma of mental illness while illustrating the facts—mental illness is common; it can happen to anyone, and it is treatable. Featuring hands-on activities and multimedia experiences, this exhibition explores the science behind our feelings and how we experience the world around us. 

As part of this exhibition, you will:

  • Peer into mini-dioramas depicting how attitudes toward people with mental illnesses have varied over time.
  • Try answering simple questions while hearing voices to experience what it’s like to live inside someone else’s head.
  • Play an emotion recognition game using only facial expressions.
  • Write down your worries and destroy them in the Worry Shredder.
  • Hear from people in their own words about living with mental illness.
  • Move your body to the beat and learn about the connection between physical activity and mental health.
