The 2021 Opening Minds art show will be in Paso Robles California at Studios on the Park during the month of May in support of Mental Health Awareness Month.
Opening Minds is a community art show in celebration of living mentally well. The Opening Minds art show was first developed in 1995. TMHA's goal is to help the community see that we should not be defined in terms of our illness but by our strengths, gifts and by the contributions we make to society.
Opening Minds is presented by TMHA and San Luis Obispo County Behavioral Health Services. The show is funded in part by the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63), and cosponsored by TMHA’s Peer Advisory and Advocacy Team (PAAT).
For 68 years, Mental Health America has led the observance of May is Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings. TMHA supports this effort locally by hosting Opening Minds during this time.
