The benefits of the Visual and Performing Arts for the sake of personal well-being has been researched and documented for decades. The arts stimulate imagination, cognitive skills, and critical thinking. Engaging in the arts increases self-expression, self-esteem, and overall mental health. Even beyond these physical benefits, the arts have proven to be an instrument in promoting the acceptance and social inclusion of all types of people.


The truth is, arts are beneficial for individuals at any stage of life. That includes those in various states of well-being, especially those recovering from any type of illness. This is the philosophy behind the Stages Arts Initiative.


Stages Arts Initiative is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit. You can help promote mental health and wellness by donating today.
