Creative Practice and Mutual Recovery

Connecting Communities for Mental Health and Well-Being

This highly collaborative programme funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number AH/K003364/1) aims to examine how creative practice in the arts and humanities can promote the kinds of connectedness and reciprocity that support 'mutual recovery' in terms of mental health and well-being.

Creative Practice as Mutual Recovery - PDF

Creative practice could be a powerful tool for bringing together people with mental health needs, informal carers and health, social care and education personnel, to connect in a mutual or reciprocal fashion to enhance mental health and well-being.

This programme marks a radical shift in vision that could generate new pathways for transforming these often discrete groups of people into egalitarian, appreciative and substantively connected communities - resilient communities of mutual hope, compassion and solidarity.
