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...

Seth Warm Line Talk to Someone Who Cares

The Membership began a survey committee in the fall of 2010. After more than a year of community investment and Fine Arts displays, 9Muses art center became a refuge for adults with a mental health diagnosis.

  • "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​​​

When we conceived of EXHIBIT 302.0, we created it with the idea that it would aid in combatting social stigma and celebrating the progress we had made in the LGBTQ+ community. These past few months have proven that progress is not a steady, linear rise towards equality, but it continues to be something we must fight to maintain and move forward. Named for the original diagnosis code for homosexuality, “exhibit 302.0” is an art exhibition focused on the intersections of mental illness, queer identities, and pathologization. Artists were invited to explore joy and triumph within these designations.


A grant in support of this exhibit was awarded to Mental Health America of Southeast Florida; 9MusesArtCenter, this exhibit was made possible by the following Funds at 

Community Foundation of Broward:

Gay and Lesbian Broward Community Fund, Richard Frisby and Edward Burkhart Fund, Charles L. Ross Fund, The Robert Elmore Family Fund, Everett H. Metcalf, Jr. Unrestricted Fund.
