A prospectus for arts and health
Produced by the Department of Health and Arts Council England, 2007

This prospectus produced jointly by the Department of Health and Arts Council England celebrates and promotes the benefits of the arts in improving everyone’s wellbeing, health and healthcare, and its role in supporting those who work in and with the National Health Service.

The prospectus shows that the arts can, and do, make a major contribution to key health and wider community issues. This publication stems from the recommendations of the Review of Arts and Health Working Group, commissioned by the Department of Health.

A copy of the review can be downloaded from http://www.dh.gov.uk or http://www.artscouncil.org.uk.
