About the blog: Art Therapy Session is a project that focuses on separate themes of art and health, and how the two intersect to create mental peace for those in need. This includes topics such as music and exercise, cartoons and mental health, writing and releasing bad emotions, crafts and activities that can be done to reduce stress, etc. The blog is always open to suggestions for topics and to comments, so feel free to be a part of the community of artists and art that heals. The blog will soon be paired with a YouTube channel, with videos contributing to the mission as well.

About me: My name is Sharnita Midgett. I received my B.A. in English and concentration in creative writing from Temple University, and I am currently an MPH candidate. As a Gates Scholar with resources to the health community, I plan to use my knowledge and research of health to create content that is helpful and accessible to the public.
I have been very active in the coverage of the arts and organizations in Philadelphia, and here are links to some of my written work:
