Abstract:
This article describes two creative arts group interventions completed in a CAMHS clinic. Both authors work in the rewarding yet busy and challenging field of adolescent mental health. Following specialist training, we wanted to explore if groupwork using creative arts experiences could support young people attending CAMHS to make discoveries about their own well-being and promote positive mental health. The research results support positive qualitative and quantitative outcomes. We used writing this article as a means to summarise our learning and collate wider research on related topics.
