Evidence on the role of the arts in improving health and wellbeing

The World Health Organisation has published a comprehensive review of evidence which concludes that engaging with the arts can be beneficial for both mental and physical health.

The report reviews arts activities that seek to promote health and prevent ill health, as well as manage and treat physical and mental ill health and support end-of-life care.
