Therapeutic services are in demand but there are too many people waiting too long to be seen. I personally had experience of this as have family members and friends. I am currently studying counselling but can only get one student loan to cover it and don't have enough for the art course, but I need to have done these before I can do the art therapy degree. So many people can benefit from art therapy, young and old. I have experienced emotional issues of my own and art therapy really helped. If more people had a chance at trying it I'm sure they would agree too. I'd like the chance to try help others and pass on what I learn. Mental health issues can affect anyone at any time and nobody should have to deal with it on their own. Setting up art therapy sessions in my local area could provide the help that someone needs when they just need to be heard and get things off their chest. If I can help at least one person it's a start.
