I totally agree with Nouleng...The Peer Recovery Art Gallery welcomes the local communities with so much more then just the love and support. The center helped me rehabilitated myself back to find a whole new meaning of life to embrace our communities and cultural roots.

Thank you so much PRAG and the staff/members ^_^

The Peer Recovery Art Gallery is truly community based. The center is accepting of all individuals without regard to their artistic ability or community standing. The focus is sincerely one of authentic acceptance. As a member of the general public, I have been impressed by the array of services/events available. As a non-profit partner, I am astounded by the level of support the Gallery extends and the expertise of their volunteers.

The Gallery maximizes their space well. Perhaps allowing for room to grow could be in their long term plan. Their emphases on wellness is clear so maybe offering informational seminars on how art and other expressive mediums aids in promoting well being.

One of a kind! They have a great youth program for aspiring artists and they participate in the community such as in the Thursday night Art walks and youth outreach programs. Everyone is made to feel welcome and at home. I volunteer as a scrapbook teacher and am a mom of a youth art teacher. They have the best mental health advocacy in this area.

I have worked with Peer Recovery Art project as a catalyst, and momentum builder for many of our youth who need an outlet and alternative to programs that may not be able tor relate. Our youth have shown an interest and a desire for more creative programming as such.

Peer Recovery Art Project has given my son a voice via his Art about the Injustices in Society. Expressing himself via Art has allowed him to grow, be aware of his emotions and take his Art to a whole new journey/level. He is proudly a Tattoo Artist in one of the best Tattoo/Piercing Shops in the East Bay. His career as an Artist began in Modesto via Peer Recovery Art Project. Thank you to John Black, Monica Silva and all the Staff that make people's Creative Expression come alive. Si Se Puede...Que Viva La Salud Mental :)! Ana G. Aviles

I have worked within the mental health field as an Occupational Therapist for 20 plus years, and became acquainted with Peer Recovery Art Project several years ago, when they launched. SInce then, I have remained in contact-several times a year and participated in Peer Recovery Art Project, both as a participant in showing art, and overall attendance to their events. Peer Recovery demonstrates there is a road towards a worthwhile life beyond a mental health diagnosis. As my involvement grows, I realize that Peer Recovery Art Project is at the forefront of living this concept, and demonstrating this to surrounding communities. No one mentions mental health within the organization-yet everything that is Peer Recovery is about promoting sound mental health. It is all about welcoming inclusion, and the knowing that everyone now, has a place to go where they can feel involved, creative, and grow within an active recovery. Truly this organization is at the forefront of something remarkable-art, in all its forms-in a setting which promotes wellness for young through old-all within a design that not only states community involvement but ACTIVATES community involvement. This is accomplished by attracting all members of the community-together, with no boundaries. Recovery within a mental health diagnosis is now a possibility for many, and a program such as Peer Recovery assists the individual to remain a part of their own communinty. Truly, this is a concept whose time has come! Debra@loving1withmentalillness.com

I found out about PRAP through my involvement with a BHRS program's painting group. Since my first visit here, the Peer Recovery Art Project Gallery has become a second home for me. The environment is so open welcoming that this normally-introverted person is able to interact with fellow artists, art enthusiasts, and other peers. I look forward to staying with this group of awesome people for many years to come!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have made some really cool new friends here.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It has helped to elevate my self-confidence. I have now promoted my introverted status to that of a situational extrovert/ :D
