ASMP photographer Don Manning released a Retrospective documentary, ‘The Bob & Melissa Project’ originally created in 1992 and never before presented. The project explores the lives of a couple living with pre-existing mental health conditions. Bob found solace in writing and recording music while grounded in a simple faith.

The story continues today while the US healthcare system is in turmoil. Pre-existing conditions that affect 50% of the US population will no longer be covered if The Affordable Care Act is overturned without First addressing the needs of half of the country with pre-existing conditions.

The work is submitted also to honor the journalistic heritage of the founders of ASMP.
