What makes working in the arts and mental health sustainable?

Help the Culture Health & Wellbeing Alliance and the Baring Foundation develop a model of sustainable practice to support people and organisations to survive and thrive in mental health and the arts.

How can people and organisations survive and thrive in mental health and the arts? The Culture Health & Wellbeing Alliance are running a six-month project to understand more about work with creativity and mental health. They are searching for participants who can answer yes to the following questions:

  • Have you used or do you use creativity to support your own mental health?
  • Do you use creativity to support others’ mental health?
  • Have you hit roadblocks trying to work in arts and mental health?

If that’s you, please fill out their survey

CHWA will then be running facilitated online conversations throughout the summer, and a series of focus groups around the country to develop a model of sustainable practice.

Join a conversation: At the end of the form they ask you whether you would like to join an online conversation about this. They will be holding facilitated conversations this summer, and are looking for participants from a range of professional and personal backgrounds, working different parts of the country. They will be able to pay each participant a small honorarium in recognition of the time taken to attend a meeting.

The Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance is leading this 6-month project funded by the Baring Foundation, to understand how they might help more people and organisations survive and thrive in mental health and the arts.
