    Ep.42 - Mental Health and Creative Writing

    For our 42nd episode of RTNT we explore the benefits of creative writing on our mental health. Progress Place member Mark interview fellow members, Yael, Walter and Mattie about their creative pursuits and the positive effects it has on their mental health.

    Yael is poet and discusses her process and inspiration and shares one of her favourite poems from her collection. Walter is a singer/songwriter and offers us a glimpse into what motivates his songwriting and contributes one of his own songs, titled Want to Help. And finally Mattie shares his unique approach to ambient songwriting and how the act of creating is by its very nature what helps in his metal wellness journey.
