The Unique Union, Inc. is a local gathering place at the intersection of applied art, urban culture, mental wellness, and creative community in Ward 7 Southeast Washington, DC.
We are working to facilitate local connections through guided art-as-therapy practices in a trauma-informed, group setting, to ultimately provide a creative, inclusive and therapeutic environment for our inner city community.
We are offering our dynamic, constantly evolving and monthly-themed #SelfCareSunday Craft Workshop program to encourage a healthy mental relationship with self expression and visual art in a safe and conscious environment, turned virtual. Click here to learn more!
Join us as we offer Adult Mental Health First Aid USA, an 8 hour training certification program created by the National Council of Behavioral Health, that teaches members of the public how to help a person developing a mental health problem (including a substance use problem), experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.

Programming starts on June 14th. 100% of all proceeds from our Branded Merchandise go toward supporting this upcoming Youth Summer Camp Program, geared to 9 - 15 year old Creatives, looking to maintain their mental wellness through culturally appropriate craft-making and visual art.
