Jane HancockHost: Jane is a professional actor, playwright, filmmaker, and creativity coach. Currently she is completing her MA in Dramatic Writing at Central Saint Martins. She loves reading, writing poetry, and collaging art in her spare time.

The value of creativity in mental health management is often overlooked.

In this class students will hear from Jane who will discuss how to use creativity to help you get through any anxious or stressful feelings.  

Embracing your creativity can help to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress. Studies have found that creative activities help people manage their negative emotions in a productive way.

This class provides a practical and optimistic look at how creative tools and techniques can help us manage our anxiety. Jane will talk through a range of these activities and their practical application.
