Mental Health and Art

Entries Open for Mental Health Art

People living with mental illness often find solace in expressing themselves through art.

They, their friends and family members are all being encouraged to create artworks to submit for a major mental health art exhibition to be held in Lismore in October.

The exhibition is aimed to raise community awareness, reducing stigma and encourage social inclusion. It will showcase a diverse range of local artwork including ceramics, sculpture, installation work, paintings, photography, drawings, textile, writing and digital displays.

Entry forms can be accessed via email or phone, and will be placed at local neighbourhood centres, art galleries and Mental Health services. Please email Kristine Uebergang on or ring her on 0439 607 697 during office hours.
