This article describes a photo essay contest of high school students in the Turning Point Program located in Ithaca, New York. The theme of the contest was "communicating what it means to have an emotional disability." The goals were to help raise awareness in the community, in the school, and in individual students about what it means to struggle with an emotional disability and to provide students with an alternate means of communicating about themselves, their lives, and their struggles. The three winning entries are presented.
