Arts + Wellbeing
As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, we are launching our short film: Creative Steps – A Journey to Wellbeing.
This film looks at the work of our Creative Steps Programme, which uses creative participation to promote positive mental health. Based on a three step progression model, we deliver craft classes in outreach health settings and at our community base in Govan, as well as offering wider participation activities and events.
Through demonstrating the work that we do, we can advocate for the use of peer support and creativity as a tool for positive wellbeing by showing how truly effective this can be.
To bring a range of voices and experiences to the film, we worked with participants of the service, who have enduring mental health issues, and health professionals from our network of referrers and outreach contacts.
You can view the film below, or alternatively click here for further information.
We see the film as being a great starting point for conversations around creative participation and wellbeing.
Get involved and let us know what you think.
