This article is about some of the benefits that arts activities can bring to people with mental health problems. In it, Wendy and Annie describe a research project set up in partnership with an art gallery, in which they looked at how perceptions, attitudes and behaviours might be positively affected by specially developed, guided arts activities. The project stimulated much thoughtful and perceptive feedback from participants, all of whom are mental health service users.
