About WWW.PSABehavioralHealth.org or www.artawakenings.org
Mission: To promote empowerment and recovery through the power of creative expression with adults and youth who face behavioral health challenges.
In late fall of 2000, PSA Art Awakenings was born out of PSA (People Service Action) Behavioral Health Agency, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization incorporated in 1971 whose mission is to enhance and empower the mental health community through creativity, innovation, and diversity. The brainchild of PSA Chief Executive Officer Sara Marriott, PSA Art Awakenings began as a consumer run business with funding from the Rehabilitation Services Administration and only four adult consumers creating and selling artwork.
Today the program is funded by Magellan of Arizona, Cenpatico, Governor’s Office for Children, Youth & Family, People of Color Network, Southwest Network, Community Partnership of Southern Arizona, Quality Care Network, and Gila River Indian Community.
From its modest beginning, PSA Art Awakenings has grown into a significant psycho-social rehabilitation program with 12 studios and five galleries serving approximately 1,000 artists annually – all working toward empowerment and recovery through creativity.
...With locations in Cochise, Maricopa, La Paz, Pinal, Pima, and Yuma Counties, the PSA Art Awakenings downtown Phoenix Studio serves the largest number of artists in comparison to its sister studios in Bisbee, Casa Grande, Douglas, NW Phoenix (formerly Glendale), Tempe, Tucson, Parker, Quartzsite, and Yuma.
The Warehouse 1005 is a unique independent extension of the PSA Art Awakenings’ family. This studio and gallery afford adult artists who have graduated from the program the opportunity to develop their artistic skills and maintain wellness at a more independent level of self-sufficiency.
The Studios provide a safe, supportive environment for adults and children to foster exploration and development of artistic skills. Participants’ distinct talents are acknowledged from the start, with each being referred to as an “artist” who learns respect for self and others, personal accountability, and pride in accomplishments while developing enhanced self-esteem and wellness management skills.
Therapeutic art groups are provided for adults and children to promote the healing power of creativity and self-expression. Participants readily admit that creating art helps reduce stress and the intensity of psychiatric symptoms. Studios, known as “the place where the magic happens”, also offer visual arts, poetry, music, movement, drama, pre-job training, socialization and education.
