Mission Statement:

To empower people with a mental health condition/dual diagnosis to design and implement a self-directed treatment plan in a creative, artistic, positive, educational, and goal oriented manner through peer support services.

The Artsy Peer is an artistic approach to peer support, from someone with compassion and understanding from first hand experience as a mental health consumer and as a mental health worker. It is a program designed to empower, encourage, and inspire the individual to be artistic, creative and innovative in being the sole person in their own journey through recovery.

I love to use different artistic media for my own recovery, as a means of self-therapy, self-expression, introspection, reflection, and a positive outlet, therefore I love to teach and impart to others a similar method of using their art for their own recovery.
