Welcome to Arts & Minds

The Arts & Minds Network brings together people in Leeds who believe the arts can promote mental wellbeing. We are open to anyone living, working or volunteering in the Leeds area who wants to see the growth of arts and health – including mental health service users, carers, mental health workers, artists, arts organisations and NHS or third sector organisations. We encourage the use of the arts within NHS services and support creative people in the community to use the arts to improve their wellbeing. We have over 1000 members and it’s free and easy to join, just fill in the form on the Join Us page. ¬†Members receive discounts at art shops and are signed up to our weekly electronic¬†e-bulletin and quarterly newsletter for all the latest information about creativity and mental health in Leeds. Please browse the site and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact us.

“If anyone is thinking of being creative I would say DO IT, have a go. It’s amazing what you can do if you try, it heals the mind.”
