The Arts

The arts can be used to challenge stigmatising attitudes and behaviours associated with mental health. Our research explores the different methods used.

Working with our partners we have been looking at the different ways we can use the arts to reduce mental health stigma and what components of stigma (knowledge, attitudes and behaviours) the arts are helping to challenge

You can read the key highlights from our research below, as well as downloading the full research paper.

You can also watch our arts research event where we discuss all the issues and solutions, and you can pick up tips on how you can use art to challenge stigma and discrimination.
