what's new

Now in our SIXTH year!

We are grateful for the incredible support we have received since our inception in December of 2013 from our unwavering Board of Directors, our generous donors, and the hundreds of individuals who attend our seminars & events each year.  We strive to bring you entertaining, enriching & affordable learning opportunities; support our artists living well with mental health issues by sharing and selling their art; and employ individuals living well with mental health conditions.  We update our website regularly and offer hundreds of Continuing Education credits for mental health professionals annually.  Please visit often and spread the word!  Mental health is everyone’s business!
