Prop63 Voter-approved Proposition 63, also known as the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), provides housing, treatment, recovery to thousands of Californians every day. Prop 63 was the first major partner of Art With Impact and has been working with us to provide educational workshops that reduce the stigma of mental illness at colleges, universities and high schools throughout California since 2013.
California Institute of Contemporary Arts The California Institute of Contemporary Arts promotes the arts through sponsorship of artists and creative programs. AWI was delighted to partner with CICA to offer the following Movies for Mental Health workshops during the 2015/16 academic year: Shasta College, Monterey Peninsula College, Chico State and Santa Monica College.
