Artreach is a non-profit Arts and Mental Health agency that uses the creative arts as a tool for healing of individuals and community. Artreach's program members are adults with mental illnesses who come together to create theater, music, and visual arts. Our community of practice is rooted in compassionate awareness, and our activities are focused on the personal and artistic growth of each person.
