Abstract:

This report summarises the discussion at the National Arts Centre Roundtable on Healing and the Arts: Healthy Mental Development for Children and Youth, the third in a series of roundtables on healing and the arts. Community leaders from the worlds of science, business, the arts, government and philanthropy, as well as beneficiaries of arts programs used to treat mental health problems, engaged in discussion that ranged from exploring the extent of mental health illness among young people, to how the arts can be beneficial to mental health sufferers.

Autism and creativity, addiction and the arts, and eating disorders and artistic expression were all topics that were discussed in both a Canadian and global context.
