November 2021 Talking Points: Art therapy helps Cammy heal!

By Candace Romano

Camille Draheim, or Cammy as she prefers to be called, has been in therapy since she was a teen. There have been many dark days for her. For a long time, she couldn’t find her way, until an art therapist showed her that art is healing. Art motivated Cammy to get better.

Since that discovery, Cammy has entered contests and won many awards for her art.

“I paint with lots of colors because it reminds me that not everything is black and white,” she said.

Cammy makes time for art because she has progressed so much. She understands how art benefits her, and it is an important tool in her journey along a healing path.

MCFI is one of the largest behavioral health service providers in Southeastern Wisconsin. Our services include evidence-based treatment and trauma-informed care. Our expertise to deliver exceptional behavioral health services is known both locally and nationally.

Since 2020, many organizations faced the difficulty of providing services and meeting the needs of the community in new ways.

It’s been a challenge that MCFI has faced as well! COVID-19 and growing community challenges require us to evolve, find new ways to deliver services, and fill gaps that exist in the community. MCFI is proud of our ability to respond to new and emerging community needs and have invested in our staff with trauma-informed care training and the science of Hope.

However, there continues to be a gap in funding not only for behavioral health care, but also for many programs that MCFI provides to the community. Please support us today with a gift to the MCFI Foundation.
