Postponed: Opening Minds Art Show

Join Us For a Sneak Peak To Celebrate Mental Health Month in May

Owing to all the uncertainty the COVID 19 crisis has created for our community, TMHA has determined it will be best to postpone the Opening Minds Art Show May 2020 in hopes of resuming the show in May 2021 at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles. 

Nine art pieces are highlighted in our Opening Minds Preview page to continue to spread the message of Mental Health Awareness to the community.

All artwork that was turned in by artists for Opening Minds May 2020 will be considered for Opening Minds May 2021. Please contact Meghan Madsen at or (805) 503-0350 if you have any questions.

The 2021 Opening Minds art show will be held in Paso Robles during the month of May 2021 in support of Mental Health Awareness Month. Opening Minds is a community art show in celebration of living mentally well. The Opening Minds art show was first developed in 1995. TMHA's goal is to help the community see that we should not be definited in terms of our illness but by our strengths, gifts and by the contributions we make to society.

Opening Minds is presented by TMHA and San Luis Obispo County Behavioral Health Services. The show is funded in part by the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63) and cosponsored by TMHA's Peer Advisory and Advocacy Team (PAAT).

For 68 years, Mental Health America has led the observance of May as Mental Health Month by reaching millions of peple through the media, local events and screenings. TMHA supports this effort locally by hosting Opening Minds during this time.
