CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - The Montgomery Museum of Art and History has a new way for people to meet with mental health professionals.

Once a month, the museum will offer free mental health tips and tricks using art and museum exhibits, followed by group conversations.

A licensed therapist will lead the sessions and focus the talks around positive psychology.

“We have different themed sessions, everything from mindfulness of sculpting, to talk about mindfulness, we’re going to have coping with words, visual music, it’s really these abstract thoughts, pairing with psychology,” Executive Director Casey Jenkins said.

The classes are free and will be held on the third Thursday of each month from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. The first class will be December 15.
