Abstract:

The 2019 Director of Public Health’s Report aims to demonstrate the evidence of the positive impact that the arts, culture and heritage has on the population; provide examples of where this is working; and further the argument to continue providing support.

Chapter 3. Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing and ageing well
Chapter 4. Engaging and empowering people and communities
