Partners

Prop63 Voter-approved Proposition 63, also known as the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), provides housing, treatment, recovery to thousands of Californians every day. Prop 63 was the first major partner of Art With Impact and has been working with us to provide educational workshops that reduce the stigma of mental illness at colleges, universities and high schools throughout California since 2013.
Throughout the films you see that society sees mental illness as negative… but in the end all of the films proved the stigma wrong because the main theme underlines hope. "
