What is Mindscapes New Brunswick?

Mindscapes New Brunswick is a Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick initiative which strives to empower persons with lived experience of mental illness.  It is a well-deserved celebration of the abilities and talents of people who have experiences mental illness.  Through creative expression, the talented artists who contribute to this exhibit will make an important connection by reaching out to everyone who views their works.

CMHA of NB is a non-profit organization and we work extremely hard each year to secure enough sponsorship to ensure that we are able to proceed with Mindscapes NB.

Mindscapes New Brunswick has the ability to shift the general public’s way of thinking to focus on the abilities of mental health consumers rather than their disabilities.  It changes the public’s mindset and dispels the myths that surround mental illness.  People realize that mental health consumers are valuable and can do many positive things with their lives despite their illness.
