The Art Therapy Institute (ATI) is an organization of mental health professionals dedicated to the healing power of the arts. Since 2006 (non-profit status since 2009), ATI has provided clinical art therapy services to diverse populations, empowering clients to develop their identities through the art-making process. We also offer training to allied professionals and seek to raise awareness in the general community about our profession and the benefits of arts-based therapy.
ATI currently works with over 500 clients a week (80% youth), most of whom live below the poverty line. No one is turned away due to lack of resources. Our largest client populations include refugee and immigrant children and women, children with developmental disabilities, children with cancer and other chronic illnesses, families experiencing homelessness, adults living with severe and persistent mental illness, and elders living with Alzheimer's and dementia.
