Painted Brain is a nonprofit organization that has been serving the community for a decade. Our mission is to build lasting community-based solutions to mental health challenges and the effects of social injustice through the arts, advocacy, social enterprise, and non-traditional media. We have started to create a positive change within our community, but we are yearning to do more. Do you want to be a part of that change?
Mental health is often overlooked in our society due to its stigma. Painted Brain uses our vibrant voices to cause a ripple of social change by speaking about mental illnesses- in the hopes to drive a more normalize conversation about mental health.
We have been granted the status of an independent nonprofit organization 501(c)3. Since then, we have expanded: we moved our headquarters to Pico and Fairfax, we received a grant from Step Up on Second to fund a tech training program and we are are cultivating new workshops to transitional centers for the youth. Our programs (began as art groups) have expanded over the years to include workshops for creative writing, blogging, poetry, photojournalism, WordPress, Etsy for Aspiring Artists, coding, peer leadership and more. These new and exciting opportunities are fundamentally the reason we are looking to expand our creative team.
Our team consists of highly motivated, compassionate, driven and down-to-earth people. We take pride in helping our community change the stigma of mental illness by putting our best efforts into everything we do. Painted Brain is looking for people who are open-minded, dedicated and have the willingness to learn. As a Media Intern, some of the skills we want are:
