“We Rise” Poetry Contest for Mental Health Awareness Month

In observance of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) is sponsoring the “We Rise” Poetry Contest, which is seeking original poems that address mental health and wellbeing. The entries will be judged on poetic merit by a panel of poets and peers. The submission deadline is May 1, 2019.

Awardees will be invited to a “We Rise” 2019 reception taking place in Downtown Los Angeles in May.

WE RISE is part of a campaign to transform LA’s mental health care system using art and community building.
