This book aims to unpack not only the philosophical and psychological need to understand ourselves but also how, through an exploration of historical archives and artistic creativity, we can build self-identify and self-esteem to improve a sense of wellbeing for ourselves and those for whom we care. It will give examples for developing mental health and wellbeing interventions for charities, private care and the NHS, and will also offer an evidence base for the use of creativity and historical resources in mental health care. The book gives a practical use for archives particularly as more are being digitalised and becoming widely available.
