Covered Bridge by Anna Garber
Covered Bridge, 16" x 20" Oil Painting, by Anna Garber (Sold)

Her sister writes: “Anna suffered from mental illness for many years – schizophrenia in particular. Painting proved to be an emotional release and provided her with a sense of worth and purpose. She especially loved giving her paintings as wedding presents.”

NARSAD Artworks is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to reproducing and selling museum-quality art, including note cards, holiday cards, posters, bookmarks, and T-shirts. Each piece of art was designed by a talented artist whose life has been affected by mental illness. The artists are paid at prevailing commercial rates, and all proceeds flow to NARSAD-funded research to understand causes and improve treatments of mental illness.

In addition, many of the items available through NARSAD Artworks were created around the anti-stigma Silver Ribbon. The silver ribbon is available as a pair of earrings, a charm, wristband, tote bag, and even a cookie cutter. It is designed to be worn to show you care about someone with a mental illness, to help break down the barriers to treatment and support, to help eliminate the stigma against those who suffer and to show you believe there is hope through education and research.

Please have a look at the beautiful, moving artwork and consider supporting NARSAD Artworks. The work produced by NARSAD Artworks has many benefits:

* provides self-esteem and income for the artists
* employs mentally ill persons
* promotes public education and de-stigmatization of mental illness
* raises funds to invest in  brain and behavior research
