Brief Description
This project was developed by Vermont Psychiatric Survivors. It was funded through the 2008 Campaign for Mental Health Recovery state implementation awards.

This organization developed interactive art events that were held at the popular Rutland Farmers Market. After each event they received an influx of phone calls seeking resources and further information. Vermont Psychiatric Survivors provided information on mental health and the CMHR at these events. Gradually, more young people are becoming involved in the organization’s events and they are strengthening their connections with community groups that serve young people.
