“Mending Art” (also the name of MHC’s statewide art program) will bring together 60 artists from Mental Health Connecticut’s Independence Center (members and staff) and 40(+) MHC statewide artists and guest artists. These artists work with a variety of themes and mediums, their common thread is their use of the arts for their wellbeing.”

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!
