About This Group

This group has been created to bring awareness to mental health by using the arts. All mediums are welcome. You don't have to struggle with a mental health issue to be a member, this group is for everyone. Discussions are encouraged :)

ABOUT GROUP SUBMISSIONS:
I believe art is subjective and I'm not the one to say your work is better or worse than another person's. I check the submissions once I've received 100 or more, and I try to feature at least one piece from every artist who's submitted. I've received many private messages from people telling me that they were ready to give up on art until they received a feature here which gave them hope. Let's keep that hope alive and keep on being kind and supportive of each other. If you're browsing through the featured work please take the time to comment or favorite pieces that speak to you.

A BIT ABOUT ME (Amy Frank):
In 2004, at the age of 18, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Before diagnosis I had a lengthy struggle with self harm, psychosis, homelessness, and drug and alcohol abuse. I started this group as I have encountered a lot of stigma surrounding mental health over the years. I want to thank all of this groups members for your continued efforts to support and bring awareness to mental health. I am so pleased to watch this group grow.
