First Aid Arts’ mission is to equip trauma care providers with arts-based tools and training. Our vision is a world where wounded hearts heal beautifully. Since 2010, we have partnered with over 600 individuals from 250 organizations in 46 countries worldwide providing training in the utilization of the arts and creativity as psychosocial support for self and others. We estimate that around 12,500 survivors of traumatic stress have been impacted by this work.
