Abstract:

A small feasibility study aimed to identify not only budgeted resources allocated to an Arts on Prescription programme, but also to highlight some of the added value that the project generated through in-kind contributions to programme implementation. This was important in order to identify the true economic cost of the programme . It focused on 2 key questions:

What do we know about the resources required to implement Arts on Prescription and other interventions?

What do we know about the potential cost effectiveness of any mental health related intervention, such as Arts on Prescription compared with investment in other activities?
