Event description


The Mental Wellness Gathering Series are FREE events for the community; the purpose is to provide the Los Angeles County American Indian/Alaska Native community and allies with access to culturally inclusive and responsive mental health services, resources, and information.

This gathering topic is "Art & Music as Medicine" and will center wellness through art and music. Our dynamic panelist will share how art and/or music has been part of their personal wellness journey and how they share it with others. Additionally, we will have three incredible hands-on art workshops to select from.
