About the study:

The Becoming Artists study is examining how engagement in creative activities impacts mental health in adolescents. All adolescents who are enrolled in the Adolescent After-School Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) were invited to participate in the study, which includes a creative arts class in its programming. This research seeks to determine if engaging in creative work can lead to a positive shift in one’s self-perception and promote greater well-being. 

We are no longer recruiting participants for this study.
