N[ART] (NARCOLEPSY Awareness, Recognition & Treatment) is a grassroots
effort to educate the world about the neurological sleep/wake disorder
narcolepsy through creative works and projects. The first N[ART]
Exhibition - a display of art work, poetry, and writings about and by
persons with narcolepsy (PWN) - will be held at the Narcolepsy Network
conference this October in New York City.
Born in March of 1999, the idea of N[ART] is based on this existing
organization: D/ART (DEPRESSION Awareness, Recognition & Treatment) is a
national program to educate the public, primary-care providers, and
mental-health specialists about depressive illnesses - their symtoms,
diagnosis, and treatments. Sponsored by the National Institute of Mental
Health (NIMH) and based on forty years of scientific research, D/ART is
a major private/public enterprise to benefit the mental health of the
American public. 1-800-421-4211
