A new art exhibit, “Reframing Mental Health,” has opened, thanks to the efforts of NaphCare, Inc. and the NaphCare Charitable Foundation, Inc. This exhibit, part of a patient-based mental health initiative, aims to raise awareness and combat the stigmas surrounding mental health.

Unique to this exhibit is the involvement of Forsyth County inmates, who helped inspire and create the displayed art pieces. The exhibit is currently showcased at NaphCare’s headquarters in Alabama, highlighting the creative expressions of those often overlooked in the mental health conversation. This initiative is a significant step towards understanding and addressing mental health issues within the correctional system.
