Journal helps fight stigma of mental illness

A journal featuring the artwork and creative writing of people who have experienced mental illness is about to publish its fifth volume this spring.

“Kaleidoscope: Wellness Through Creative Expression” not only provides an artistic and literary forum for those with mental health challenges; it also assists family members, caregivers, professionals and students in gaining highly personalized insights into the recovery process.

Participating artists from across Manitoba contribute significantly in breaking down the stigma associated with mental illness as a result of the Kaleidoscope process and product.

“Having one’s work appear in a published journal does wonders for one’s self-esteem,” says Laurie Green, a former Kaleidoscope creative director.

The production and publication of Kaleidoscope is facilitated by a partnership between Artbeat Studio (Studio Central) and the Canadian Mental Health Association, Manitoba Division.

A regional facilitator from each of the CMHA areas will promote and encourage the works of artists from their region. The Kaleidoscope production team works out of Studio Central in Winnipeg.

Persons of all skill levels are welcome to submit their creative work to kaleidoscope

@artbeatstudio.com. Works are selected for inclusion in the publication by jury.

For submission details, timelines and technical standards, please visit www.artbeatstudio.ca (electronic submissions are preferred). Publications will be available in both hard copy (distributed to locations throughout the province) and in online format.
