NAMI Joplin: Creative Wellness

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental health challenges. NAMI Joplin has partnered with Spiva Center for the Arts to provide a weekly Creative Wellness group to individuals in the area. This exhibition will showcase the works of that group, demonstrating the way art helps ease the pressures of mental health and how creativity can be used as an emotional outlet. Artworks from over fifteen members will be shown and a portion of sales will go towards helping to support NAMI Joplin.
