HUG ME Ink is a peer-led nonprofit organization increasing mental health awareness and recovery sustainability through the arts. We primarily focus on the performance arts, such as drama and film, as our avenue to promote mental health awareness.

We produce films and stage productions as a way to reach out to our community on mental illness, recovery, stigma, and empowerment. We conduct workshops and host open mic nights to increase self-expression. One of our most popular outreach is focused YOUTH! We use the arts to create prevention tools when it comes to stopping bullying!
