Art Exhibit at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center Helping Raise Awareness of Mental Health.

Two dozen art pieces centered on mental illness stand in the main hallway at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo.

They were all created by artists who live with mental illness, and are meant to shine a spotlight on mental health and the triumphs and struggles that come along with it.

“I think it’s a really reflective way of how we are trying to deal with mental health in the community and what Sierra Vista is doing in its commitment to support those patients,” says Eleze Armstrong, Chief Operating Officer of Sierra Vista Medical Center.

The art exhibit will be on display through the month of November.
