Art With Impact

“We promote mental wellness by creating space for young people to learn and connect through art and media”


Art With Impact (AWI) helps connect young people with mental health resources so that issues like substance abuse, self-harm or suicidal thoughts don’t impede opportunities for future success. AWI’s early intervention and prevention-focused programs and film contest help young people to question and develop their own thoughts and feelings around mental health, allowing them to make informed and effective choices in support of their well being and emotional health.

Founding Story

Our story boils down to a bunch of people who believe in mental wellness: growth, healing and truth. We don’t think of mental wellness as the absence of mental illness. We think of the personal reflection, growth and optimism inherent in the creative process. We are filmmakers, actors, painters, photographers, dancers, business people, public servants, activists, revolutionaries, advocates, allies, siblings, parents and partners. We believe that promoting mental wellness is a first step toward a better tomorrow.
