Mission

Divinemoira Studio presents “Turbulence Behind Tranquility," a rotating group exhibit composed of over thirty local, national and international artists. The exhibit uses the arts to raise awareness, foster open conversation, and de-stigmatize the topic of mental health in our community. 

The main objectives of this installation are as follows: (1) to provide an opportunity for communities to be made aware of the issues surrounding mental health in America (2) to provide educational and counseling resources, (3) to invite the community to interact with the exhibit thereby breaking down the stigmas surrounding mental illness.

A mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life.

Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and borderline personality disorder. The good news about mental illness is that recovery is possible.

Mental illnesses can affect persons of any age, race, religion or income. Mental illnesses are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing. Mental illnesses are treatable. Most people diagnosed with a serious mental illness can experience relief from their symptoms by actively participating in an individual treatment plan.
