Creative Expression in Dealing with Depression
October is Beyond Blue’s Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month. October 4-10 is Mental Health Week.
This workshop at Maitland Regional Art Gallery is designed to both raise awareness and to provide tools for dealing with depression and anxiety.
Art therapist and workshop facilitator, Karen Adler, states that “I see Depression as a place. Literally. Somewhere I used to live for a period of my life after my mother died. It's a place I refuse to take up residence in ever again. Art therapy and writing help me veer clear and take another road.”
