To raise awareness of mental health issues, Art in Mind regularly creates resources for a whole range of people including children, young people and adults who are recovering from mental health issues.
The resources are also used by parents and professionals who want to gain better insight into young people’s mental health experiences.
CREATIVE RESILIENCE PROJECT
Young people from Art in Mind wanted to create tutorial videos and an online course on how art can help improve your mental health and wellbeing. The online course has been made by young people for young people.
Workshops were created by young people from Art in Mind with the help of experienced artists and a film maker, we have developed a programme of 10 video workshops to support those unable to leave home due to physical or mental health reasons.
This project was funded by Arts Council England, the National Lottery and Sussex Community Foundation.
VISUAL ARTS PRACTICE FOR RESILIENCE
This resource is useful for trained community artists, youth workers and art therapists interested in using resilience ideas in their work with young people.
It can also help practitioners, parents and young people who already use resilience-based approaches.
The guide offers practical advice and ideas that are affordable and accessible, and can be put into practice with groups of young people.
MENTAL HEALTH AND THE RESILIENT THERAPY TOOLKIT
This book is for any parent or carer who is at all concerned about the mental health of their child. It is written by young people who have themselves experienced mental health issues, with a little help from a couple of adults.
It is designed to give parents and carers insight into how young people themselves see their world and the problems they experience.
