Arts for good health

‘You can’t use up creativity; the more you have the more you use.’ Maya Angelou.
 

Did you know that being creative is good for your mental health?  Are you or do you have clients who are interested to learn how to use creativity to boost health and wellbeing?
 

‘Arts for Good Health’ courses are run by the Recovery Pathways service.  These are a variety of short courses designed for access to further parts of the community and have their own prospectus.  These can be used as an introduction to our core service or as part of a move on plan. We encourage referrals from services and self-referrals.  flowers

Courses run for around six to eight weeks at differing venues across the city, with group sizes ranging from six to 12 participants depending on the venue. 

Places are limited and reserved on a first come first served basis.  All materials are provided free of charge.
 

“Talking with people and sharing ideas has been really helpful to me; I’ve made new friends and recaptured my self-belief.”
