Drop-in Group for Adults with Mental Health Issues

Art from the hArt for adults is a 2-hour, once a week, opportunity to enjoy some creative work, meet people, and find out how to express yourself in new and creative ways. Wednesdays, 1-3pm in Pennington, Hampshire.

This drop-in group will allow for participants to bring in their own materials if they wish, but also to experiment with new materials and techniques under the guidance of a qualified art therapist, working with an experienced facilitator and with several carefully selected volunteers.  


A small charge is being made per session to help cover the cost of some materials and light refreshments.  


hArt hope to run the group over a 48 week year, and have funding in place for at least 30 weeks at this stage, and anticipate that the shortfall will be made up by other funding applications with decisions due later in the summer.  


The group will meet on WEDNESDAYS from 19th April, 2017, from 1.00pm - 3.00pm at the WI Hall, Ramley Road, Pennington, SO41 8JS


The group is open to those wishing to self-refer or referrals can be taken from from GPs and other agencies.


The cost is only £3 per person per session. 


Come and be a part of something new!
