Awareness Through Art

Many artists are taking to Instagram and other social media platforms to do their part in supporting individuals struggling with their mental health. “Santa_ana_dreamin714“, the Instagram account belonging to California artist Judith Villanueva, has an abundance of beautiful art for sale with all proceeds going directly towards mental health. Judith Villanueva has personally suffered from anxiety for upwards of ten years and found that making art was a great outlet for her. Through the process of making art, her main goal is to raise funds for mental health awareness. Not only has art become a way for her to support her own mental health, but now Judith has dedicated all the proceeds from her artwork to NAMI OC, an organization that provides various resources for families including educational meetings, fundraisers and support groups. Judith says: “I’m super excited. I’ll soon be taking some of their courses to educate myself more on the organization and mental health”.
