Circle of Friends for Mental Health is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to improve the lives of people burdened with mental illness by providing them with ongoing programs in the visual arts, music, creative writing, drama, and photography.
Circle of Friends fosters health by staffing arts classes with university interns and community volunteers, and offering the classes free of charge to persons with mental illness. Artistic expression is a proven way to aid people in their recovery and self-healing.
Circle of Friends helps participants display their artwork at galleries, coffee shops and community venues. These supports provide our low-income community members with a modest financial compensation.
