‘A powerful tool’
A 25-year-old has cerebral palsy and has suffered with anorexia, depression, bullying and domestic abuse for years. Art therapy has transformed her life by giving her a way to express her emotions instead of turning to unhealthy coping methods such as self-harm.
Emily loves drawing colourful butterflies as a reminder that she can be free from past struggles. She said art is a “powerful tool” and many more people could benefit from engaging with creative therapy.
Whether or not you’ve got mental health problems, everybody should do art. You just go into another world and disconnect and feel free.
“Doctors are so quick to just prescribe tablets and drugs, which in some cases you do need, but actually if you prescribe art that can be another tool of support for people.”
