Welcome to Blank Canvas
We are working to promote improved mental health for all, through creative peer support programmes.
A creative approach to mental health
As a mum with lived experience of perinatal mental health issues, I wanted to offer peer support to other new mums in need. In 2019, Blank Canvas was established as a grass roots organisation, offering peer support to mums who were struggling with their mental health during pregnancy, or in the first two years since having a baby. The Blank Canvas programme was developed, using a series of creative journaling workshops to allow participants an outlet to express difficult emotions. A little spark of magic was created, bringing women together to share their experiences, reducing their isolation, and giving them an instillation of hope that they will get better! If your organisation would like to deliver the Blank Canvas Programme to the mums you are supporting, then we would love to hear from you.
In addition to our perinatal mental health programme, we also offer bespoke creative workshops to both corporate and 3rd sector organisations. Whether you are looking to enhance the well-being of staff, volunteers, or the clients you work with, we can offer a range of workshop solutions.
