At Painted brain it is believed that sharing artistic skills, talents or interests are a great way to connect with other people dealing with mental illness. Painted Brain offers all sorts of arts and crafts groups as well as coding, poetry and music groups. Having a creative community of support has been helpful for the contributors of Painted Brain. All art and entertainment lovers are welcome, including painters, photographers, sculptors, conceptual artists, performance artists, filmmakers, graphic designers or art lovers!
In addition to the social development and opportunity for respectful positive interaction between participants, something that is sorely missing from the vast majority of mental health providers, our groups also serve an outreach purpose. We are always trying to build and grow our community and we meet hundreds of people a year through our art group services, all potential members, and contributors to our community.
