American programme for arts and health for the military
Americans for the Arts have issued a comprehensive publication exploring the ways in which the arts can support current and ex-servicemen and women.
Americans for the Arts

The publication, 'Arts, Health and Wellbeing Across the Military Continuum’ outlines the research that has thus far been undertaken into the impact of the arts on health problems like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. It also includes practical guidance for setting up arts activities with veterans and calls for changes in military policy to better integrate the arts into health and care for the services.
