I have been volunteering at Mosaic, Inc for years -- because it is a terrific group of people providing high quality empowering mental health and addictions services to so many individuals and families across Maryland. I've been impressed and moved with how expressive and talented Mosaic clients are in drawing, painting, collage, etc . And with how they describe what it means -- expression, self reflection, healing, commentary, enjoyment. BUT, there is zero money in the way the US mental health system currently runs for art supplies, art instruction, art therapy. Staff at Mosaic, Inc end up buying supplies from their own pockets, gathering a few donations here and there, and often clients just have to go without this "extra" that is so not extra. SO, I am joining Create for Recovery to help Mosaic make art more available to all! Join me? I love making mosaic table tops (fun, beautiful & recycling together!) so my "team" in the campaign is Mosaics for Mosaic!
