Rethinking Community Building and Mental Health

Mission

We strive to destigmatize mental illness through our collaborative mural making process. We create spaces to discuss mental health and foster new social interactions between people living with mental health conditions and fellow community members.

Mental Health Awareness

Sometimes we don’t fully understand mental illness and have prejudiced beliefs that can lead to discrimination. Learn how stigma impacts individuals and our communities, and see what we can do to eliminate it.
