Art Therapy | Malaga Hospital

Factoría de Arte y Desarrollo have carried out an art therapy program from the Picasso Foundation | Museo Casa Natal with a group of patients with mental disorders who were being treated in the mental health unit of the Hospital Clínico de Málaga.


The results obtained were largely satisfactory for all participants. Likewise, the clinicians responsible for monitoring the patients rated the experience as very positive after their active participation through their attendance at all sessions. But not only people with mental illness can benefit from developing artistic or creative activities. It has also been shown to be effective in improving the quality of life of people with social integration difficulties in general (people with disabilities, victims of abuse, inmates, etc.).
