Program Spotlight – Painted Brain

Painted Brain (PB) is an innovative peer-run mental health arts and tech organization that uses a peer model focused on recovery. Painted Brain creates lasting community-based solutions to mental health challenges and the impact of social injustice through arts, advocacy, and enterprise. In completing this work they train and employ Peer Support Specialists who work closely with people who have experienced or currently experiencing mental health challenges helping them live full, active, and professional lives. Painted Brain defines “Peer Support Specialist” as a person with lived experience with mental illness or substance abuse and who uses that experience to promote recovery.

Painted Brain’s peer model encompasses a variety of aspects of the workplace environment including human resources, job recruitment and outreach, hiring process, conflict resolution, and a perspective on a workplace culture that supports workers with lived experience.
