This exhibition tells the story of the journey of living with mental illness through creative expression. It has been timed to coincide with Schizophrenia Awareness Week (May 10 - 16).

The artists exhibiting in The Art of Healing live with a variety of diagnoses. Some of the artwork has been created under the guidance of artist Melanie Baulch and funded by Sunflower House.
