Arts and Minds Network
The Arts and Minds Network brings people together to share creativity, knowledge and resources so that arts can flourish in health and social care settings.
The Arts and Minds Network aims to increase public knowledge and understanding of mental health through the arts. They also aim to support individuals receiving health and social care services to access mainstream arts activities across Leeds.
The network is open to everyone with an interest in the role of arts in health.
