Research continues to show the benefits of artistic activities in improving mental health. Whether expert or beginner, artistic projects can be a source of calm, positivity and focus. Creating visual art, music or creative writing can help us process our experiences, and connect with our feelings and memories. Working together with others in a creative space helps to improve communication skills, share experiences, and build social networks – something which is becoming ever more important as we make efforts to stay connected during these challenging times.
Getting involved with arts can have powerful and lasting effects on health. It can help to protect against a range of mental health conditions, help manage mental ill health and support recovery
