“Mending Art” (also the name of MHC’s art program based in Waterbury) will bring together 60 artists from Mental Health Connecticut’s Independence Center (members and staff) and 40(+) artists from across the state, including members of the statewide Veteran’s Art Foundation and St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury. Each unique work explores the artist’s connection to health and wellbeing through art.

Funding for MHC’s Mending Art program comes from support at the Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF). CCF was an early believer in this program and continues to be a wonderful champion of making art an integral part of wellbeing for individuals and our communities!
