Creative Arts and Mental Health

Course Description

The programme addresses what has become a significant need in the field by offering an innovative interdisciplinary approach to Creative Arts and Mental Health. The programme is taught by mental health professionals and specialists in live art, performance art, theatre and performance history. This MSc seeks to attract professionals in education, artists, and mental health practitioners who would like to learn in more breadth and depth how art and performance can be used to understand experiences of mental health and illness, and how arts offers critique and challenge to conventional practices that may be evidence based but still risk disempowerment. Art enables the stories of individuals and groups to be better embraced. Students will be offered core modules in mental health and in performance and then select optional practice-based modules in arts-based research and arts-programme evaluation and in live art and performance.

The course is delivered by experts in the centre for psychiatry and the drama department at QMUL, both leading research departments that rank amongst the top in the country.
