Arts for Health  

I have been looking in to different ways arts crafts and creativity can help improve health and well being for all types of people. this is one of the organisations that has inspired me. please take a look.

"Creative activity has been proven to have tangible effects on physical health, increase self-esteem, provide a sense of purpose, develop social skills, help community integration and improve quality of life.  Creative application of the arts can also dramatically improve the environments within which health and social care are delivered, bringing wide ranging benefits to those using them."
