In a news release, the Mental Health Promotions Committee wrote that it’s hoped that “through art, we will reduce the stigma of mental illness. Art is a wonderful venue to explore the recovery process of those affected by mental illness and this exhibition is open to all artists, professional and non-professional whose lives have been touched.”

Said artist Flora Desjalais: “It relaxes me and makes me happy and proud. I can forget my problems when I am doing my art.”
