RGH sees art as a reflection of what our veterans and youth feel while also informing the broader community on issues like mental health. RGH will integrate healing art programs into its work with veterans, families and the broader community. Art inspires, educates, builds understanding and benefits people and the community in many ways.
As part of ongoing efforts to introduce art therapy to our community and our veterans, Resilience Grows Here will continue to hold local Mandala workshops. To date the Resilience Grows Here committee has worked with the East Granby High School to do a mandala workshop and at the kick-off event on June 11th attendees developed a community mandala.

At the June 11th Kick-Off event, attendees were asked to contribute to the development of a community mandala. The community mandala was created to celebrate the community and honor our veterans.
