We are an organisation dedicated to tackling stigma in mental health through creative sharing.  We aim to help people share ideas, experiences and encourage self-expression through art of all forms.

We produce a quarterly online magazine the ‘Creative Mental Health Guide’ that can also be downloaded as a pdf, a fully interactive social media site and online webinar courses in recovery and education.

Locally we work as part of the Good Mental Health Co-operative and run many workshops and events for all different groups.

We recently launched our Recovery and Training website to complement our fabulous Online Community here at Creative Mental Health.  This is where the webinars take place and you can book your place at any workshops.

Take a look around!

Founded in October 2013 we have grown from one strength to the next, having built up a positive reputation for delivering high quality creative workshops and producing a regular magazine that has made a mark across the globe. We now have a large team here at Creative Mental Health, working hard to deliver a positive change to social views on mental health across the globe.
