Art therapy is a creative, low-stress method for treating mental health problems such as anxiety. It is a popular form of treatment for children and teenagers, who may not always express themselves in the same way adults do.
Art therapy can be fun for people who want to try a different approach to therapy. The therapist involved will often be trained in some form of art as well as in psychology.
