About the Mural

ACTW held its first fundraiser in the winter of 2017; an interactive wellness festival based on a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) initiative, the eight domains of wellness (social, emotional, spiritual, financial, physical, environmental, occupational and intellectual). At the inaugural event, San Bernardino artist Ivan Preciado created a mural titled, Refine.  Refine is a five-panel street art mural exploring the intersections between creativity, education and wellbeing. 

Refine will go on tour as a traveling exhibition to selected high schools throughout San Bernardino and Riverside counties beginning in January of 2018.  

ACTW funded for a third year

We are pleased to announce that ACTW has been funded for a third year by the California Mental Health Services Authority to raise mental health and suicide prevention awareness in the Inland Empire.  This year funds will be used to support Latino communities, specifically, through SanaMente, the Spanish version of Each Mind Matters.

 

We are excited to see what we are able to do together in the coming year to support mental health and wellness in our region. If you are interested in joining forces, please email us directly at janee_bothgragg@redlands.edu.
