NEW YORK, USA – 4 OCTOBER, 2022 – Brian Johnson is delighted to announce that Vagarights now offers art therapy services for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

Art therapy is a potent tool that can improve patient outcomes in several ways. The use of art therapy has been found helpful to people suffering from severe depression and anxiety, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, substance abuse disorders, and a range of other psychological issues.

The mission of Vagarights is to further the use of art in treating mental health and cognitive decline. They aim to promote research into the use of art as a treatment for mental health issues, cognitive decline, and behavioural problems and to help healthcare professionals apply that research in a practical, clinical setting.

More specifically, Vaga is a collective of artists, academics, students, psychologists, counsellors, and therapists dedicated to exploring how art can be used to combat mental health issues. The organization began as an artists’ collective designed to help independent artists protect the commercial rights to their work.

The work done by Vaga helps countless people overcome crippling mental health issues. Many find that thanks to the uniquely transformative power of art therapy, they can regain control over their lives and fulfil their potential without being held back by conditions such as anxiety, depression, paranoia, or substance abuse.

The organization links artists with mental health experts and psychiatric practitioners, allowing them to create art therapy programs tailored to their specific patient needs.

Vagarights allows for more collaborative work between psychologists, healthcare professionals, artists, and academics. This fosters a rich research environment to explore the relationship between cognition, emotions, and artistic creation.
