Arts and health
The contribution of the arts to physical and mental health and wellbeing is well recognised within the arts sector, and is now beginning to be widely acknowledged within the health sector.
In partnership with the Scottish Executive, we have developed ArtFull, a national initiative with the aim of articulating, developing and promoting the arts and the role they play in improving the mental health and well-being of people living in Scotland.
