A community celebration of living mentally well.
Join us at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles for the Opening Minds exhibition from May 3 - May 27, 2018.
Unique to the San Luis Obispo County area, the Opening Minds art show was first developed in 1995 to offer people experiencing mental illness a way to express themselves and to provide a venue to share art, feelings and thoughts with the general public. The show has since expanded to include the entire mental health community: those in recovery, their family and friends, service providers and more. TMHA's goal remains the same today: to help the community see that people should not be defined in terms of their illness but by their strengths, gifts and by the contributions they make to society. Join us for this inspiring opportunity to shed light on mental health through artistic expression.

When a young person experiences a frightening break from reality, Western experts usually label it a "first-episode psychosis" while many psychologists and indigenous cultures consider it to be a "spiritual awakening". The documentary CRAZYWISE reveals alternative treatment approaches and a survivor-led movement challenging a mental health system in crisis.
