Academy for creative and healing arts for people with metnal challenges

Creativity is the opening for the human heart to meld pain and anguish then convert it into brilliant works of art. When we lose our impulse to create, something inside us slowly begins to die. People with mental health challenges often lose this part of them when their illness takes hold.

Mine did for many years. I was diagnosed with bi-polar illness when I was 19. You can read part of my story if you click here.

Please join the hundreds already on board in Victoria to create our Vision of a Healing Centre where we use creativity to transform Mental ”Illness” into Mental HEALTH!
