For Mental Health

Interested in trying out a new art form and developing skills in a relaxed atmosphere?

Creativity Works’ Mental Health Creative Support Service offers an opportunity to learn some creative skills, make new friends and is suitable for people who are in the process of recovery from ongoing mental health challenges, anxiety or depression to help build confidence, learn new skills and make friends. There are also spaces to attend creative peer support groups, which are managed by group members and have occasional visiting art tutors.

If you would like to book a place on a course or join a creative peer support group, please fill in the enrolment form and return it to Philippa specifying the project you would like to participate in. Or for further information please get in touch with Philippa (philippa@creativityworks.org.uk) or call the office on 01761 438852.
