From Surviving to Thriving: building a model for sustainable practice in creativity and mental health

New report from Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance and the Baring Foundation.


This new Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance report, by Minoti Parikh and Victoria Hume, is the result of a six-month project funded by the Baring Foundation, working with around 150 practitioners to understand how we might help more people and organisations using creativity to support mental health to thrive.

At the heart of the report are series of recommendations for five groups: practitioners, commissioning organisations (whether arts, health or care), funders, researchers and infrastructure organisations like the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance itself.

A fantastic catalyst for in-depth conversations about building a model of sustainable practice to support people to thrive through creativity to support their mental health.
