… art is a valid and constructive treatment for mental health challenges.
ART, MENTAL HEALTH
“Visual art interventions have stabilising effects on the individual by reducing distress, increasing self-reflection and self-awareness, altering behaviour and thinking patterns, and also by normalising heart rate, blood pressure, or even cortisol levels” Bolwerk et al. 2014.
For many years now, academics within the psychology, therapy and neuroscience fields, have reported the medicinal impact of art for an array of mental health issues. BeCause wants to take this research further and foster a wider acceptance of art practice as valid treatment for health issues. As such, we invite researchers throughout the world, to use our programs as a part of their research.
