ARTSMH is a student-led non-profit that hopes to provide students who are interested in both the arts and mental health an opportunity to explore, experience and learn together. The UCL ARTSMH Outreach Branch (student-led project via Student Union) holds a 3-months programme with each partnering school. During the programme, we provide art-making activities, self-reflection opportunities and informative sessions for senior school students. 

We aim to help students better understand what the arts have to offer in developing and maintaining good mental wellbeing. We also aim to reduce the stigma associated with mental illnesses by educating students about different mental disorders. 

Come join us to boost your leadership skills, artistic skills and gain some work experience in education settings. You will also learn more about mental health and different areas of psychology by volunteering with us!
