Angela Tuckerman is an Associate Clinical Social Worker with a Masters in Social Work from USC. Angela was also a former MSW intern at Painted Brain. Angela’s postmasters’ clinical experience is focused in homeless services specifically intensive case management and housing, individuals experiencing severe mental illness, chronic illnesses, and women experiencing homelessness. Angela has been painting since she was 7 years old and majored in Studio Arts at Bard College. When choosing her second-year master’s internship, her interest in the Painted Brain peaked when she saw an opportunity to combine both her passions. When interning at the Painted Brain, Angela realized how vital it is in de-stigmatizing mental illness to have a safe space where people can come together to socialize, create, and advocate. While working in homeless services, Angela continued to see such a need for organizations such as Painted Brain to help individuals integrate into empowering communities.
Angela is driven by ending mental health stigma and being part of the movement to lift up disenfranchised individuals and populations. Angela has a special interest in women’s rights and is ecstatic to be overseeing the women’s day at the Painted Brain as well as providing clinical support to members and the team.
Painted Brain creates lasting community-based solutions to mental health challenges and the impact of social injustice through arts, advocacy & enterprise.
