One of the most fulfilling parts of creating Mindful, has been the opportunity to meet and learn about all of the amazing organizations and services working hard to end stigma and increase mental health awareness. Many of these groups will be present in the SCC Gallery the first Saturday of the month throughout the exhibition for our "Saturday Information Sessions," and other, non-local, groups will be featured here on the Mindful blog.
Art with Impact, based in San Francisco, CA, promotes mental wellness by creating space for young people to learn and connect through art and media. Using film as a conversation-starter, the organization leads workshops on mental health for young adults in both the US and Canada. They also hold a monthly film contest centered around mental health.
