The Prevent Blindness Art Therapy Program
The Prevent Blindness Art Therapy Program was created to help individuals with thyroid eye disease (TED) and their care partners (spouses, family members, friends, loved ones) create art using a variety of artistic media to help express themselves and cope with feelings of isolation, anxiety and depression.
Art therapy has been shown to help improve mental, emotional and even physical wellness The process of creating art in a group setting can help reduce anxiety and depression, provide a way to express difficult emotions in a creative manner, and reduce isolation, which could be particularly important for people experiencing the challenging symptoms of TED. This program also provides an opportunity to build new connections by sharing stories and experiences. Click here to learn more.
