Meet the newest graduates of MHA’s Culinary Arts Program
You can enjoy the results of an ArtsWestchester project MHA helped support now appearing daily on the sides of 329 Bee-Line buses throughout Westchester and the Bronx. ArtsWestchester teaching artists, painter Tova Snyder and writer David Surface, collaborated with students at the Rockland Psychiatric Center. The resulting work, combinations of visual art and mutually-inspired poetry, are both thought-provoking and visually appealing, beautifying our public spaces, and appealing to the humanity in us all.
“The expression and appreciation of art is an element of healing and self-discovery. The journey toward recovery is the discovery of one’s inner strength to shape one’s hopes and dreams. Individuals with mental health conditions reach their aspirations through mindfulness and self-determination. Art is a beautiful road to travel.” - Amy Kohn, CEO
Minding Your Health: One in five American adults is impacted by a mental health condition in any given year. Mental health conditions are treatable and recovery is possible – once we pay attention and seek the right kinds of treatment and supports. We encourage you to explore the screening tools offered by the National Mental Health Association, and to discuss the results with a physician or health care provider. Screens are offered for Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar and PTSD.
