Bihl Haus Arts, a non-profit art gallery, is offering art classes for veterans called Forward Arts. The group partners with Vet TRIIP, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing alternative therapies, to help these veterans.
“When their veterans graduate from their program, they come to us and take our classes,” explained Kellen McIntyre, Bihl Haus Arts executive director. “Our veterans are either self or clinically diagnosed with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, military sexual trauma or depression. So, they come to us and they take our classes, and we see results really quick. Changes in their perspective and how they’re relating to the community.”
