Mental Health awareness week 2022Artscape Project Manager Tom Cox and Arts co-ordinator Angela Conlan will  demonstrate just how much cultural activities like art, dance and music can enhance patient and staff wellbeing. More than eight out of 10 people say creative activities have helped them, relieving anxiety, depression and stress. And they can help lift people out of loneliness, this year’s theme for the Mental Health Awareness Week.
