Artist’s Experience: “My life would end without the ability to do art. Being able to do art has really kept me alive and helps me deal with anxiety and suicidal ideations. Doing art calms my PTSD and helps me to be able to deal with the world. I appreciate this opportunity to show people that depression can be handled with art. I am able to express my pain through art and be an engaged part of the world because my art helps me make it through. I am so grateful to the local community for the continual art supply donations, you EMPOWER US!“
