Summary Strategies to combat the many effects of mental illness on individuals and families need to go beyond psychopharmacology and institutional care. Evidence has been mounting for the healing and treatment role of art in clinical and health care settings. Art, in its many forms, has also been suggested as one valuable tool in addressing social exclusion in people with many forms of disability including mental illness.
This paper draws on Masters Research findings to present a discussion of the historical and the current landscape of Art for Health Programs with special emphasis on art programs targeting people with chronic mental illness. Recent studies in the UK and Scotland indicate that participation in the arts can enhance recovery, social connectedness and cultural inclusivity.
