Mental Wellbeing & Creative Arts


Recovery College Blended Learning Courses

The creative arts are often overlooked at having a higher than average incidence of poor mental wellbeing, with practitioners at a significantly higher risk of poor mental health than most other professions. This online course addresses this through looking at identity, our sense of self-worth and validation, the importance of connection and supportive networks and our sense of purpose. It also looks at burnout, anxiety and depression and suggests measures to support a healthy mental wellbeing with mindfulness as part of that.


This is a progression course to help the participants connect with, recognise and develop a dialogue with their creative inner child, develop healthier connections with self and others and nurture a greater awareness of what it means and requires to develop good mental wellbeing. This course is suitable for anyone who uses creative arts for their positive wellbeing.
