Teresa Morton, a ‘Local Hero’ for Burnaby in 2014, is one of the founding members for My Artist's Corner (MAC), an art program for artists living with mental health issues.  MAC is transitioning from a semi-independent program of Canadian Mental Health Association to its own non-profit society. 

What is My Artist’s Corner?
MAC is a group of artists who live with mental health issues
We value the opportunity, in terms of space, time, and materials to create art which in turn increases self confidence, reduces isolation and helps in developing social skills. As we build supportive relationships with our peers, we find new ways to express ourselves and to forge new connections with the larger community.
MAC has three objectives:
  1. To provide a safe and welcoming environment for our members to produce, display and sell art
  2. To provide our members with high quality instruction in art techniques
  3. To promote our artists’ work in the community at large
