We were thrilled to take part in psychART a national conference, supported by ELFT, ELFTArts and RCPsych, which aims to highlight and celebrate the positive presence of creativity and the arts within mental health and psychiatry. The aim of the day is to explore the role that the Arts can play in the lives of those living with mental illness, as well as the rewarding experiences and opportunities available to those working in this field.

The conference included a full day of talks, workshops and presentations, as well as opportunities to network with psychiatrists, artists, and people working and living within the mental health environment. We really enjoyed sharing our practice with an enthusiastic audience and met some inspiring people through the day – in addition to sharing an illustrious bill including Stephen Fry, Toby Litt and many others.
