Opening Reception: August 5 from 5:30-7:30pm

Threshold Rehabilitation Services presents, “Creative Healing: When We Talk Within.” This exhibition is about the power of creativity and its positive impact on mental illness. The objective of this presentation is emphasizing the process of creating and the affect it has on recovery and wellness. Not all of us are accomplished or talented artists but all of us can benefit from creating. This display will tell the story of how some people in our community are using their creative expression to live with mental illness and have hope.
