Mental Health Awareness Month
MAY VIRTUAL ART SHOW IS NOW LIVE!
In support of our social responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19, we are recognizing Mental Health Awareness Month through a Virtual Art Show. Now more than ever, we need to come together to celebrate each other's creativity and talent.
Thank you to our partners, The MetroHealth System and the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, for their support.
We also want to thank all of the artists for sharing their stories and talents, and for helping us shine a light on Mental Health Awareness Month.
