LIVE Lunch & Learn

Using Creativity for Mental Wellbeing

WITH The Reluctant Gurus

Thursday, 12th November | 12:30 – 1:10pm


Did you know that creativity is a key aspect of mental wellbeing? As children we are encouraged to make sense of the world through creative expression; utilising tools such as imagination and play to communicate our feelings and process our experiences. Why then as adults, do we hold ourselves back from being creative with excuses such as ‘I don’t have the time’?

In this lunchtime seminar, we will unpack why creativity really does matter in maintaining mental wellbeing and a balanced life; and how it can be utilised not only to help you deal with upheaval, change and difficult experiences, but can be easily implemented into your daily routine to help you live a happier, healthier existence overall. We’ll also get creative ourselves, trying out a few of these practices to illustrate just how they might benefit you – so be sure to have a pen and paper at the ready!

This session will include an intro to the science behind creativity for wellbeing, and how creativity can work to support mental health in the context of practices such as Art therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy); along with a taster of a few creative practices that will work to benefit and support your mental health every day and in times of crisis.
