Abstract:

The study examines changes in depression scores amongst those with mild to moderate depression who participate in an arts course and explores the reasons. Working in a climate of limitations to health expenditure, and aware that participatory arts can be beneficial to those with mental health problems, this study followed a group of clients on arts activities over 12 weeks, questioning the effectiveness, costs, referral arrangements and transferability of the project.
