     Over the last decade or so projects that support creativity in people with mental health problems have developed and flourished in many communities. I will be sharing information on many of them in one of the resource guides to my Living Through Creativity Series.

     The Awakenings Project in Elgin, Illinois began in 1996 and has expanded in many directions over the 20 years since its founding. Other communities could learn valuable lessons by looking at this model and adapting it to their own needs.
