Creativity Works, peer group members and volunteers alongside University researchers will present their findings based on recent participatory action research with University of the West of England and University of Bath.
We will review some of the discoveries and identified challenges around the question of: How can creative activity support sustainable models of wellbeing and mental health recovery?
Interest in supporting the sustainability of creative groups has led to the co-creation of a Toolkit to support peer led groups and participatory research with UWE and Bath University.
