How We Do It
Addressing Health Concerns
The Foundation for Art & Healing supports communities and individuals struggling with a range of health issues by offering evidence-based creative expression programs as a catalyst for improved well-being. With expertise in addressing chronic mental, physical, and social illnesses, the Foundation has tailored its programs to meet unique challenges presented across specific populations in multiple settings and environments.
With the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, our work is more important than ever before. Americans are facing unprecedented rates of mental health challenges and health disparities and inequities have been further amplified. To address a lack of social support and resources to properly maintain well-being, we provide support to vulnerable populations and communities that lack access to quality care or have been subject to structural inequities.
