Island Artcast

Thursday, October 7th, 2021 - 33 minutes

In light of mental health awareness month, Olivia sits down with two Art Therapists, Fern Callister from Teapot Trust and Emily Harrison from Isle Listen to discuss Art and mental health. Together, they unpick the nature of what Art Therapy is, who can benefit from it as treatment and why it is such a rewarding career to have. From creating art to address emotional trauma in therapy sessions, to creating art as a release and a calming activity in someone’s spare time, there is such a wide range of ways that creating can be a healing method for the mind.
If you're struggling with your mental health and think this method of therapy could be helpful to you, get in touch with either charities that are here to help you. Details below:
