MHA of Illinois has launched an anti-stigma project called, “Manifesting Healthy Futures: 24/7 Voices and Visions of Wellness”, in which they are curating 24 creative nonfiction stories from folks with lived experience (consumers), and then recruiting 24 volunteer artists to interpret these, culminating in a storytelling/art exhibit and fundraiser.
“Manifesting Healthy Futures” is already national in scope, as MHA of Illinois has received stories and artist volunteers from Illinois, California, Missouri and North Carolina.
MHA of Illinois has extended the deadline for submissions of stories until October 28th and invites affiliates to see if they or their community members want to submit stories. For further information about the project and how to submit a story, please see the attached documents.
Thank you, and we hope you will be able to participate!
