Cultural Diversity in Arts for Brain Health, Tuesday 5 July 2022

The uplifting power of enjoyment of creativity in our own or new culture nurtures our resilience in the community.

Engaging in re-energising social activity from the onset of a potential dementia empowers individuals and their loved ones to preserve their brain health, combat isolating fears and nurtures sense of identity, of belonging and resilience for years longer.

Dr Sharmi Bhattacharyya, Consultant & Clinical Lead for Older People’s Mental Health at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in North Wales and Editor, The Old Age Psychiatrist, Royal College of Psychiatrists chairs a debate between leaders in social prescribing, culture health and wellbeing, with a particular focus on diagnostic tools and arts workshops celebrating diverse cultures.
