INCLUSION IN THE ARTS
The Creative Arts programming at Mental Health Association in Ulster County consists of various visual arts activities, that range from drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, or writing. A rotating monthly schedule of classes is provided for pre-registration to any adult living in Ulster County with a mental health diagnosis. Local trips to art galleries, museums and cultural centers may also be organized for participants. This is part of the organization’s holistic approach to providing alternative healing and recovery tools, and opportunities for self-expression, empowerment, and effective communication.
In recognition of its forward-thinking programming, the Mental Health Association in Ulster County has been awarded the Ulster County Executive’s Arts Award for Inclusion in the Arts.
