Inside Out Gallery Opening at FSCJ

You are invited to view Jacksonville’s largest multi-media art exhibit aimed at minimizing the stigma surrounding mental illness at our FREE event.


 NAMI Jacksonville (National Alliance on Mental Illness), Day of Difference, African American Mental Health Initiative (AAMHI), Yoga4Change, Redeemer Anglican Church, PACE Center for Girls and St. Mary’s Community Outreach are just a few of the local organizations that care about mental health who will be in attendance.

Come meet our artists and authors! We will have over 50 pieces of art for you to view.

Local author, Theresa Larsen, will also be in attendance. She created a canvas for Inside Out and will be available to discuss and sign copies of her book, “Cutting the Soul”.Cutting

Cutting the Soul is a journey into the mind of a mentally ill teenager as he faces intense feelings of depression, psychosis, addictive cutting, and suicidal behavior. This memoir details four years of Matthew’s life through the eyes of his mother, health care workers, and Matthew’s own journals. It shows the desperation of a mother battling through the world of mental health and her own “demons” of the past and present, in an effort to save her son.

We sincerely hope to see you there! Refreshments will be provided.
