These Veterans Are Beating PTSD With Art Therapy
“If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.”
This quote, by the American painter Edward Hopper, sums up art therapy, a type of therapy that uses artistic media to explore and interrogate difficult and complex emotions. Art therapy plays an important role in the treatment on offer at Tyrwhitt House, a Combat Stress facility for veterans who are recovering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Combat Stress is a mental health charity that offers free help and advice to UK veterans.
