Creativity and its place in recovery

This week Derek Barron shares his experiences of attending a conference where he heard from someone with mental illness and how creativity and art has helped recover some of the lost hope. Derek also shares an account of someone with learning disabilities who was subjected to bullying and the devastating impact this abuse had on them. We can all learn something from this blog.
