In this episode of the Heromakers Podcast, Laurie and Ann talk with Jeff Sparr and Matt Kaplan, co-founders of PeaceLove, a movement that encourages creativity, self expression, community, and storytelling via the arts. After struggling himself with debilitating OCD, Jeff was encouraged to engage in the arts and it changed his life. He was soon visiting hospitals and encouraging and training others to use the arts to build mental health and deal with difficult situations.
The movement has grown to training thousands of people in all different contexts.
In this episode we talk with Matt and Jeff about what it's like to live with a mental illness, how creative expression can promote wellness, and why PeaceLove is thriving, even during a pandemic.
