The BeCause Movement is an Australian NFP that provides expressive art-based, therapeutic resources to individuals and communities around the world.

 

Collaborating with psychologists, psychotherapists,  therapist, researchers and artists, BeCause designs, creates and facilities workshops, experiences and webinars which bring people together to explore
the use of arts for mental heath and well-being. 

 

Advocating the increased adoption of social prescription as a relevant and valid treatment for mental health issues, all BeCause resources are founded on communal and creative platforms. As such, BeCause Movement is also able to contribute to research findings on the medicinal effects of art practice.

BeCause, together we can create change that beautifully ripples into our communities

This movement was founded by the globally renowned artist and psychotherapist - Noula Diamantopoulos - who has dedicated her extensive career to the provision of constructive resources for building positive connections between minds and behaviour.

 

Noula’s work is fueled by a deeply held ambition to eliminate the influence of neglect on our collective lives and behaviour. She believes that with the support of a trauma informed psychotherapy practice and a better understanding of the effectiveness of art process on our mental health and wellbeing, individuals can move through debilitating emotional distress, to a higher quality of life.

We need to move away from a reliance on prescribed pharmaceuticals and shame-based interventions as treatment for emotional distress on any level. In all my years of working with trauma victims, as well as those experiencing general mental health issues, I have never witnessed mental instability in those engaging in the arts. I have seen them do so with the many ways that they feel shame, but through the process of art I see them find solutions and resolve matters, which then translate into their life. BeCause is about changing the way we work with people who are mentally and emotionally challenged and making these resources available to those in need of relief ... BeCause I see the benefit and so will you".
