The annual Art of Recovery benefit, hosted by Community Support Services, has showcased more than 250 original art pieces since 2016. The artists are clients living with severe and persistent mental illness, many of whom participate in CSS’s Expressive Arts Therapy program. Art of Recovery showcases these clients’ creativity and talents, while fighting the stigma of mental illness and celebrating the powerful impact that creative expression has in the mental health recovery process.
