Creativity is at the heart of everything we do

We know that art and creativity is a lifeline for many people experiencing mental health issues.

 

We also believe that art can be a powerful tool for tackling stigma. Sharing art and opening up about our experiences can be the first big step towards greater understanding and empathy.
