May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Collective Member Martha Bird has been front and center over the last couple of months because she is a strong mental health advocate. A professional artist, Martha, has been leading the collective with their latest show at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, RESOURCE featured her story this month in a new blog post. Read here.

Martha joined RESOURCE’s Spectrum ArtWorks program’s Artist Collective in August of 2016. She’s an artist living with a mental illness, but prefers to be known for what she does and who she is, not her diagnosis. “I’m an artist. Period.”
