Mates4Mates Online Arts Therapy Program

To assist Mates and their family members in managing and improving their mental health, we’re offering our Arts Therapy Program online.

Arts Therapy is designed to initiate change and growth through artistic expression, in a safe and supportive environment and is particularly helpful for any veteran or family member who may find it difficult to verbalise or conceptualise their feelings.

Our Online Arts Therapy Program will run for four sessions and is facilitated by qualified practitioner, Jasmine Wright. The program will support participants to increase self-awareness and overall wellbeing; develop new skills in a fun, creative and safe therapeutic setting; and feel connected to and further explore self-identity through creative arts-making processes; and create social connectedness and provide an opportunity for shared understanding and learning within a group context.

To participate, you will need:

  • To be a registered Mates4Mates member – you can join here
  • PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone with video calling capabilities
  • Internet connection capable of sustaining an online video call 

Upcoming program:

  • Every Tuesday, starting from 20 September – 11 October
