Each fall, CMHA-NL holds its annual Mindscapes art exhibit and fundraising Gala dinner. This event showcases creativity and talent from all over Newfoundland & Labrador. The art exhibit maintains the tradition of accepting pieces by talented artists with lived experience of mental illness, addiction, or mental health issues in our community. While this event generates much needed funds for CMHA-NL, more importantly it has become an avenue for aspiring artists living with mental illness, or mental health issues, under which they can showcase their amazing talents.
At our Mindscapes Gala, we have featured both high-profile Canadians and local keynote speakers who have presented their personal and professional experiences with mental illness. This event brings together artists, consumers, corporations, health care providers, non profits, and the public so we can share our stories, our challenges, and celebrate our successes.
