Art seems to be a recurring theme for me these last few months. Personally I’ve always been interested in art. As there is an increasing awareness of mental wellbeing issues in the press, and elsewhere, I guess the stories relating to how art plays a part in recovery really stand out to me.
So far I’ve mostly look at how art plays a part in recovery, and there is much coverage of how using words, photography, paint, installations etc play in wellbeing, but what about diagnosis? I read a story in the Metro about a graphic artist who designed a rather neat self-assessment kit called Mindnosis which is aimed at people who, like me, might not be particularly good at putting into words how they feel.
I think this seems like a great idea as a first step to the road to recovery. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
