    Hi all! Just learned about the Repository for Arts & Health Resources at http://artshealthresources.org.uk and wanted to spread the word about this great resource! 

    From their website: 

    WELCOME TO THE REPOSITORY FOR ARTS AND HEALTH RESOURCES

    This site is for anyone interested in the field of arts, health and wellbeing, but particularly academics and researchers; policy-makers in central and local government; health and social care managers, and creative arts professionals engaged directly in using their artistic skills in healthcare and community settings to support health and wellbeing.

    This site houses a range of 'grey literature' and other resources not easily found on the main websites dedicated to covering arts for health practice as it has grown and diversified.

    Particularly, it provides a chronological overview of the significant publications not captured by major research databases, that have documented and guided the development of the Arts and Health field in the UK over the last twenty years. It does not include peer reviewed papers as these are included in a range of other databases and repositories.

    It also has links to the key research centres and departments pivotal to the development and establishment of robust evaluation and research. These centres and departments have been concerned with building theoretical models and robust secure evidence to explain and document the benefits that the arts can bring to health and wellbeing.
