Artlift Programmes

Artlift runs 3 programmes for people living with mental health challenges, long-term chronic pain and/or who are living with or moving on from cancer.

'Create Well' Mental Health programme

Create Well Mental Health

Our Create Well programme builds on a track record of arts on prescription for people in Glos living with mental health challenges, like depression and anxiety. We co-produce our offer with ex-participants and health partners including NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Living Well with Chronic Pain programme

Living Well with Chronic Pain

As part of NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group’s ‘Test & Learn’ programme, since 2015 we have been developing a series of courses co-produced with pain specialists and people with lived experience. The multi-arts project-focused approach offers choice in how participants engage and find ways of using arts activities to support self-management of chronic pain.

Flourish programme

Flourish - Living with or beyond cancer

Our Flourish programme began in 2016 as a partnership project with Macmillan Cancer Support to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with or beyond cancer.  To augment our online Arts on Prescription courses, we’re designing new Creative Health projects with partners such as Yes to Life.
