Budding artists receive colourful treatment

BUDDING artists at St Michael’s Hospital are receiving colourful new treatments.

Patients at the mental health hospital in Warwick have been using a new Art Psychotherapy room for individual and group sessions.

Art psychotherapist Cherly Portlock said: “Art therapy uses art materials as its main way of helping people understand, express, communicate and alleviate emotional distress and mental health problems.

“Many patients really value the space and opportunity provided to express themselves, their thoughts, feelings and interests in a different way.




“Art therapy can help people reconnect with who they are, re-build confidence, communicate and make sense of their internal experiences and support their overall mental health recovery.”
