A Celebration of Mental Health through Art Tonight

A Celebration of Mental Health through Art Tonight

 

Mental Health Anti-Stigma HOPE Campaign’s 2011 Art Exhibition is opening tonight in Alexandria. The event, Art Uniting People: A Celebration of Creativity and Mental Health, will be held at the Lee Center tonight from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

This month is National Mental Health month and this exhibit hopes to reduce the stigma of mental illness. Over 100 local individuals (from ages 3-85) whose lives have been affected by mental illness submitted artwork for the exhibit. They were able to use art as a form of expression to engage the community at large.

Chair of the Anti-Stigma Hope Campaign, Marsharia “Shay” Holman, said, “Art is such a powerful way to express yourself.”

“The artists were so excited to have a forum of expression to be able to tell the community their story,” said Carrie Fesperman Redden of the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria, who has also been involved in the planning and set up for the evening.

Local Family Starts Tornado Relief Effort: NOVA for BAMA

 

Catherine Haynes was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. When she received word of the tornados hitting her hometown and surrounding areas, she decided to take action locally.

Soon after hearing about the great losses in her family’s neighborhood, Catherine Haynes was talking to her husband and said, “I feel helpless and I don’t feel like I can help my parents. I feel like we ought to get together and try to help the community as a whole, since I am not there to actually help them get the tree off the house, or get the yard straight."

The couple decided to put the relief effort online and see how many people they could get behind them. The Facebook fan page has grown to over 160 “likes” and is a place where you can find the various drop-off locations, as well as a list of supplies needed. Home goods have become a particular identified need by the aid centers.
