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.
