With funding from Dacorum Borough Council we are happy to announce that we are offering men with mental health and/or addiction challenges an opportunity to join art and creative expression sessions.

We are offering the below groups, they will be one hour long and will consist of twelve sessions over twelve weeks.

1. Creative writing and poetry

2. Art

3. Music - Click here to register your interest in the Music group and suggest days and times that suit you.

Each group is run by 2 Peer Facilitators who are using creativity to help them with their recovery.

The aims of the groups are:

  • Make connections;
  • Gain practical experience in creative expression;
  • Use creativity to improve wellbeing.
  • Unlock your creative potential.

These sessions will be delivered through Zoom (a free video conferencing system) and are fully interactive. All group members who book onto our sessions are expected to attend all of the sessions and participate in the activities and discussions to ensure everyone gets the most out of the session.

You will need to provide your own materials e.g.:

1. Creative writing and poetry – you will need pen and paper

2. Art - a selection of art materials such has; pencils, pens, paper etc

3. Music
