The latest research relating to connections between mental health and creativity has just been referenced on the BBC News site. We’d thought we’d republish a link here.
After a quick straw poll around the office and friends we’re all agreed that everyone has some creativity in them and as mentioned in our About section, we all tread a fine line between wellness and dis-ease, whether we consider ourselves creative or not.
