WE RISE is a 10-day pop-up immersive experience that brings together LA’s diverse community to explore our collective power to live lives of purpose and engagement. Through powerful programming, performances, immersive workshops, and a world-class art exhibition, we seek to embolden individuals and families to find help, reach out to help others and demand systemic change in order to address the critical need for early intervention, treatment and care for mental well-being.
A project of the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, WE RISE provides a space for people to contextualize our individual and collective suffering and take action to re-imagine what is possible.
Why We Rise is part of a national movement to transform the mental health care system. We demand that easy access to quality care be recognized as a civil right. Everyone deserves to be well.
