As part of its groundbreaking WE RISE initiative, the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health is hosting a month-long series of free community programs, events and experiences highlighting the healing powers of art and connection during Mental Health Awareness Month in May.
In its fourth year, WE RISE is needed now more than ever as the region emerges from the isolation of the global pandemic and continues to grapple with related stressors and racial injustice. WE RISE encourages wellbeing and healing through art, connection, community engagement and creative expression.
