Beautiful Distress was founded on the concept that there is a great deal of mental suffering, that not enough people are aware of this and that not enough is done to stop it.

The Foundation uses art in an attempt to open up the world of psychiatry and battle the stigma attached to it.

Why art? Beautiful Distress believes that art is pre-eminently capable of articulating and depicting the human condition


Do you want to support Beautiful Distress?

Beautiful Distress is completely dependent on sponsoring and donations. We are still a small Foundation, and your support is essential to the success of our work. For this we need your voice and your donations. This will help us in developing the artist in residency project currently running at Kings County Hospital Centre (KCHC) and in realizing a subsequent exhibition in a well-known New York venue with as much publicity as possible. US based donors may claim the tax benefits allowed by U.S. tax law for their contributions. We welcome any kind of donation and thank you in advance for your generosity. We also would like to invite corporate sponsors for whom we have developed an attractive sponsor package.
