A Mind with Mental Illness is a Magnificent Mind!
The Magnificent Minds Project was created as a way to celebrate the immense creativity, ingenuity and artistic brilliance that exists within individuals who have mental illness. It is a non-profit organization that collaborates with businesses, organizations, metal health service providers and others in the community to create diverse opportunities for artists to showcase their work. Our mission is to utilize the art created by artists with mental illness and their personal, real life narratives to promote empowerment, mental health awareness and community advocacy against stigma. Recognizing the magnificent contributions artists with mental illness have made and continue to make to our society is a key value of our organization. We foster traditional and unconventional collaborations, allowing all who participate in the Magnificent Minds Project to engage in mental health advocacy.
