Digital Storytelling and Film Production For Transitional Age Youth
Our mission is to empower young adults living with mental illness and equip them with technical skills that will distinguish them in the job market and provide a sense of occupational identity.
Since 2014, Painted Brain Tech has been fostering a community of techies living with mental health challenges.
Our unique workshops combine experiential opportunities with alternative educational modalities and are further enhanced by Painted Brain occupational therapists, who ensure an optimal learning environment through expertise in sensory processing and performance in everyday tasks.
The program integrates mental health support and community building in the context of cutting-edge technical training.
Shifting public attitudes about mental illness and mental health require a fundamental shift in the way the public discourse frames mental health. Prevailing public attitudes heavily influences public policy, which significantly affects how the mental health industry works, and how mental health professionals approach their work with consumers.
Telling your stories to others can often be incredibly helpful to other people.
Our own words can give inspiration and awareness to others who may not know what it is like to look at life through your lens. Alternatively, someone may identify strongly with your struggles, resilience, and perseverance in a way that they were previously unable to.
It also gives many psychological benefits to the storyteller.
Telling your story to others may help you to truly “find your voice,” and learn how to express yourself in a way that others can comprehend. Analyzing the events of your life and compiling them into a linear story can help to appreciate the events that have led you to become the person that you are today.
