Spotlight on mental health: the benefits of art

With this week's spotlight on mental health, a pop-up exhibition has opened in Sussex giving artists who are in recovery a chance to display their work.

For people suffering with anxiety or depression, art can be a vital way to gain not just confidence, but a purpose.

And, as Andy Dickenson found out, it can also be a valuable tool to help communicate problems that are often too difficult to talk about.

Andy speaks to Philippa Thompson of Sussex Oakleaf and artists Reef Morley, Amy Syrad-Hardy and Adam Llewellyn-Smith.
