What is the evidence?

At MyLocalMind Inc. and FremantleMind Inc. we only provide services that are evidence-based. The use of artistic mediums within a psychotherapeutic framework enriches and facilitates a deepened knowledge of the participant’s self and their way of seeing and being a part of the world around them. By promoting moments of expression and enhancing awareness, positive and meaningful life changes are possible. Art therapy has been shown to contribute to significant positive changes in mental health symptoms in populations with different clinical profiles and non-psychotic (i.e., anxiety, depression, etc.) mental health disorders.
