Understanding my mental health and wellbeing

When things in life are tough, your head is a mess and you’re on the edge, it’s time to make changes.   Creative Recovery is a people led organisation working passionately to transform lives in and around Barnsley.

Things to Live For is a fresh project using art to refocus and reconnect.  It’s about open and honest conversations and meeting people that understand where you’re at.  Don’t worry, you don’t need to be Banksy.  We’ll go and see some art, get inspired and make something great.  The course is half a day each week running for seven weeks at the Recovery College and is led by an Art Therapist and Street Artist.  It’s funded through BMBC Suicide Prevention Fund.
