This short film is about one man’s journey with mental health difficulties and the role art played in helping him through. ‘Art and Mental Health’ is a video put together by an organization called Peg.
“Peg measures the health of our community year over year – in ways that count. We tally studies on everything from the health of babies born in Winnipeg right through to how many of them graduate 18 years later. We track how much garbage we take to the landfill and how often we give up our cars to take public transit. We calculate how often citizens volunteer and if we’re doing more or less of it. It’s here at Peg that Winnipeggers can learn how their life, their neighbourhood and their city is changing – for the good and the bad. Peg is a starting place for Winnipeg citizens, business owners and policy makers to learn the facts so you can lead change to create a better city for your children and their children.”
