Mental illness is a serious medical illness that affects approximately 1 in 4 families.  Mental illnesses disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood and ability to relate to others and daily functionality.  The good news about mental illness is that recovery is possible!  

Works in this show will radiate positivity and happiness. Bright colors and photos capturing "light" are encouraged!  All sales will benefit Metropolitan Council of Community Mental Health Centers (Metro Council).  

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: JUNE 3, 2019 BEFORE 4PM (no exceptions) 

Metro Council represents the public mental health system, otherwise known as Community Mental Health Centers (CMHC), in the Kansas City area.  There are seven, independently run CMHCs in the metro area that serve as the entry/exit point for services for both children and adults.  Each CMHC is responsible in addressing the needs of residents in a specific geographic area.  These mental health centers work together to form a primary mental health service safety net system, with a joint mission of providing quality mental health services to low-income individuals and families.
