We provide a fully-equipped, safe and accepting community–based arts studio for people living with severe and persistent mental illness and/or addictions. All members are encouraged to reach their highest potential through art projects and workshops. As a result, their general life skills and ability to cope in the larger community also improve. The healing process is based on integration of principles of occupational therapy, mental health care, visual arts and vocational counseling. We support our members on their journey to self-expression through art, greater self-esteem, improved confidence and eventually increased participation within the larger community.
