Can I join in?
If you are age 14-25 and have experience of mental health problems, your own or someone else's, and have a creative drive, we would be delighted for you to join us! You can join our supportive online community on Facebook, Instagram (@ThingsAsTheyAreYork) and Twitter (@BlueGuitarYork), and use it to share your work in any artform, get feedback and start conversations.
In addition we get together for workshops and to watch and talk about performances. Contact us any of the ways above to find out more.
What is a mental health problem?
Mental health is a large spectrum. 'Mental health problems' could be experiences of stress, low mood and anxiety as well as diagnosed mental health disorders.
What if I feel anxious?
It can be scary joining a new group for the first time. Remember that the young people and many of the teaching artists have experience of mental ill-health so we can relate to how you feel. The group is creative and always focused on the art.
Why not come and see for yourself?
