Depression 'eased' by arts

19th September 2007

Research by experts at Manchester Metropolitan University found that participants in arts initiatives felt happier, empowered and more confident. The study involved more than 100 people. It indicated that by re-inspiring people with depression and helping them to feel in control of their lives, it may be possible to boost their capacity to cope.
