Who is it for?
The group is open to all adults experiencing mental health difficulties whether you have a diagnosed mental health problem, such as depression, anxiety, stress-related issues or experiencing difficulties in your life that needs attention such as coping with the effects of the pandemic. Or you may be joining the group to support your overall wellbeing or to prevent a mental health issue from developing.
I encourage anyone interested in exploring their feelings through art-making to join. You don’t need technical art skills to benefit from group Art Therapy.
