Arts + Minds commissioned Lydia Sapouna to investigate the impact and potential of the arts within mental health care in the context of the Arts + Minds Action Research Project in 2011. It explores the achievements and challenges of the Action Research Project, and locates both in the context of a literature and policy review of arts and health, mental health and recovery approaches.
