Art and Mental Health

The blog explains how conversations about mental health remain difficult for many people to engage in or initiate, yet mental health struggles are often depicted in or used to inspire artwork.

The blog post (see here) presents a range of pieces of artwork followed by descriptive summaries discussing its relation to mental health.
