Crisis Intervention

At the heart of many of their comments was the toxic effect of stigma and discrimination of those struggling with Mental Health in Fort Lauderdale.

The center has been promoting wellness for over twenty years and functions successfully as a peer-run organization. Members are free to come and go as they please, participate in any art classes, support groups, and wellness activities they wish, or sit and enjoy coffee and conversation with other members. Positive interaction creates a sense of empowerment and promotes mental health. Come join us! See what a Muse can do for you...

  • "I am a whole person, and all my parts come together."
  • "My primary care doctor would never ask me about mental health issues," 
  • Participants share relevant personal and professional experiences. Read more​​​

The Nine Muses

9Muses Art Center is a drop-in center located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We are a program of Mental Health America of Southeast Florida providing free peer-driven behavioral health support to adults with mental health and substance abuse disorders. The center has a fully functioning studio for fine arts classes and ceramic art. Participants may choose from a broad array of visual and performing arts. Classes and personalized instruction along with individual studio time allow members to create according to his/her own personal “muse." Evidenced-based wellness activities and anxiety, and depression support groups are held weekly.  Members can engage in stimulating activity, free from the stigma of mental illness. 

You do not need a diagnosis to attend a support group. All are welcome.
