Drawing for Wellbeing

I specialise in 'Drawing for Wellbeing' Workshops as I have been diagnosed with a mental health condition ‘Acute and Transient Psychotic Disorder’. During my relapses I can become highly creative and draw and record every moment of my experiences of psychosis. Using the ‘Arts as Therapy’ helps me to cope with my illness and can help others with similar issues to have a platform for self-expression.
