NAMI and Inscape Collective believe that art provides individuals with a creative outlet for self-expression and healing! Stop by to see beautiful & meaningful creations by artists connected to each of these non-profits who believe in supporting opportunities for taking care of one’s own health and that of the community.
Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. However, mental illness affects everyone directly or indirectly through family, friends, or coworkers. That is why each year, during the first week of October, NAMI and participants across the country raise awareness of mental illness, fight discrimination, and provide support through Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW).
The integration of art into mental health care has the potential to enhance the effectiveness of traditional therapeutic approaches and provide individuals with a creative outlet for self-expression and healing. We believe that mental health conditions are important to discuss year-round, but highlighting them during MIAW provides a dedicated time for mental health advocates across the country to come together as one unified voice.
