Reports on the findings from interviews and questionnaires on arts and health projects in Cumbria.

The results revealed considerable activity throughout Cumbria, especially with a focus on mental health. The majority of the initiative was delivered through the voluntary sector rather and through statutory services.

The author concluded that the structures of the NHS Trusts in general do not encourage arts participation.
