Does painting, drawing, singing, or even simply listening to music, make you feel better mentally? The latest ground-breaking series coming to ABC explores how engaging in creative arts can have a positive impact on mental health. Space 22 follows seven Australians, all with lived experiences of mental health conditions, as they embark on a healing journey with the help of creative pursuits.

Guided by professionals from the Black Dog Institute, ‘Space 22’ is investigating if creative art really can make a difference when it comes to improving mental health. This series has great potential to be a learning tool on how to navigate mental health and wellbeing, with step-by-step tutorials and art lessons that can easily be applied in your classrooms. Don’t forget to request episode one from our TV Guide this Tuesday.
