I can say first hand. Art therapy is a Positive in my life. I can express the thing’s I see, hear and feel. It’s one of my Positive Coping Skills. I’m afraid without Art. I would be deeper in my Illness then I am now. Though, I’m in Medication Management & getting treatment. I still have my bad Day’s, just not as frequently as I was before Medication.

I am a 4th year honours student in Scotland. I am going to work with a Art Project for people with mental health problems. I am basing my dissertation on the effects of Art on mental well being and I was wondering how I could get a copy of the film! Thanks

The film focuses on Nyoman Kereta, a rural Balinese man in his late sixties, who suffers from a psychotic-like illness. The film explores Kereta’s personal history of trauma, loss, and environmental illness, all of which may have contributed to his illness experience.
Shadows and Illuminations explores how non-normative mental events and behavior, including auditory and visual hallucinations, can be understood or interpreted in multiple ways outside the confines of western psychiatric diagnostics.

As a ‘Schizophrenic’ myself however, it is not a disease or condition. Look at the symbology in just one of these paintings, the pills in the stomach and hypnotised eyes. Then go and research pharmaceutical companies, marijuana and other natural medicinal benefits from nature and research Monsanto and GMO’s.
We’re not the deluded ones, society is 🙂

Art,indeed is the lifeline of such sensitive people . Medicine can just control their external symptoms but creative arts sustain them and inject meaning into their otherwise ‘lost’ lives.It is their haven and they have every right to feel secure there and the world must respect them, understand them and support them.Needless to sat that the Expression of such artists is sacrosanct and pure art

Drawing, painting, composing music, poetry and writing of all kinds were my “safe place” growing up. I know what it is to fall into art and not feel a part of the world for a while.
There were times when I questioned the validity of “just” doing art. Not anymore. At a certain age I believe we gain some perspective on what is important and real and what is just for show. Things done for me are real. Things done for someone else are not, in my opinion. Amazingly, the things I do for me seem to receive the most interest from others. People know when something is real, from the heart, and they are naturally drawn to those little pieces of what I think of as “the infinite truth.”
Now, I often think it is people without art in their lives who are the crazy ones.

Complete freedom to be yourself, or not, no police of any kind and no right or wrong and no can or can’t, no should or shouldn’t, will or won’t, just as much freedom as one will allow for one’s self to experience. There is no sanity without art, no art without feeling and no freedom without getting the demons out.
Lawrence,
How well I know!
