Mentalization Based Art Therapy Pilot in the South East Edinburgh Community Mental Health Team

Organisation : NHS Lothian South East Edinburgh Community Mental Health Team
Grant Amount : £ 4,500

Mentalization Based Art Therapy offers additional potential to the existing gold standard verbal treatment for personality disorder symptoms. It makes the treatment accessible to those who would otherwise struggle, for a variety of reasons, to access or make use of purely verbal treatment.

The SE CMHT currently has no Arts Therapies provision so this could address two identified needs simultaneously.
