Education

Our education program provides a unique opportunity for students to learn more about mental health issues through art and story.  As well as a guided tour of our current exhibition, the students will hear from one of our Advocates who has a lived experience of mental health issues.  The weaving together of art and story raises the student’s awareness of mental health issues and reduces stigma by building empathy and understanding.
