For teenagers and young adults, art therapy offers a fundamental avenue in which to explore transitional hurdles such as identity, occupation and relationships in a safe and non-judgemental environment. For adults, the arts can be a refreshing and energetic way to acknowledge and address concerns, traumas and significant life changes, including grief, loss, health and migration.
