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.
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.
A KINSHIP CARERS’ RESOURCE – USING RESILIENCE IDEAS IN PRACTICE
This book is written specifically by and for kinship carers who are looking after children who have been removed from the care of their birth parents following the intervention of social workers.
It is designed to give other kinship carers information about the challenges that they have experienced and how they have dealt with them.
