IPSUM supports those with poor mental health by offering a creative ‘outlet’ to express difficult feelings and emotions.We have fully equipped Studios for Art and Music, which is complemented by a Digital Audio Workstation studio.
Our therapeutic writing, poetry, or creating a piece of music has served as a coping strategy for many of our clients because of its powerful way of communicating difficult feelings and emotions in a safe way.IPSUM has its own Mental Health show on the local radio station Swindon 105.5. The show is created, produced, and engineered entirely by our service users, who meet weekly to discuss within a group setting each month show contents. The show is made up of interviews, group discussions, poetry, music, songs, and Raps, all created within IPSUM interventions. This not only serves as a platform to learn new skills but allows confidence, self-esteem, and social skills to grow.
IPSUMs creative services are complemented by our 1-1 counselling provision. We are proud to have a bank of over 30 experienced counsellors supporting us on a volunteer basis.
