In it Together
The My Voice Media Center is not only a place to make art but to also make new friends and know that you are not alone. Everyone here is living with a mental illness or knows someone who is. The MVMC is a great place to share and help each other out. We do not judge one another or feel that we have to be fake. We are honest and really enjoy learning how to express ourselves through art.
Over the years we have seen our participants grow not only in their art but also in their everyday life. For example, someone who was once very shy and didn't talk much is now sharing their story in our no-stigma speakers bureau and making new friends. Another example would be a participant who didn't know much about art and is now showing their art in different art shows around town.
The MVMC Is so proud of all our participants and hopes that they know how much they are appreciated.
