Studio Upstairs
Description

Studio Upstairs supports creative and personal recovery through arts practice.

The Studio exists to provide artistic resources and therapeutic support to people experiencing mental and emotional distress and to those in drug and alcohol recovery. The charity aims to make a specific difference in the lives of our beneficiaries in three main areas:

● Improved and maintained health
● Development of an artistic identity
● Inclusion in the wider community & improved life chances

We provide and maintain a working artists’ Studio, which is a community where people produce their own artwork - in whatever medium or format they determine - within a supervised, social, creative and therapeutic framework. We deliver flexible and considered artistic, educational and therapeutic support over the medium to long term. We advance public education by challenging the stigma surrounding mental health; this aim is attained through public exhibitions. high profile events and publications. Members attend on a regular weekly basis and are supported by qualified, registered and experienced arts professionals and therapists.

Self-referrals are welcome and Initial Assessments are free.

We also offer a Carers Respite service which offers:

● Space, materials & time to explore your creative side
● Emotional support by qualified therapists
● The opportunity to become part of supportive artistic community

If your local authority has agreed to fund your breaks in your care plan, you should be able to choose how you can get your break. If after the assessment the local authority decides it will not fund a break for you, you can still decide to pay for your own break from caring.
