How emails can promote art therapy, leading to better health outcomes

How emails can promote art therapy, leading to better health outcomes

Providers can use HIPAA compliant email marketing to send information and promote awareness about art therapy within their communities. 

cross-sectional survey of mental health patients and the general population states, "A relatively high proportion (around 60%) of people both in mental health services and in the general population would be interested in participating." More specifically, A quantitative survey showed that "Art therapy is widely used and effective."

The improvements associated with art therapy included:

· "Expression of emotions,

· improved (more stable/positive) self-image,

· making own choices/autonomy,

· recognition of, insight in, and changing of personal patterns of feelings, behaviors and thoughts,

· dealing with own limitations and/or vulnerability."

Furthermore, Michigan State University states, "When combined with talk therapy, art therapy aids individuals in managing intense emotions, fostering self-awareness and self-worth, and decreasing stress and anxiety.

Art therapy can include dancing, music, painting, coloring, sculpting, and drawing, and providers should inform patients of the available options. Patients may find that certain art modalities resonate more with them than others, so providers should encourage them to explore and see what works best.

Providers can use email marketing to send patients information on upcoming art therapy sessions, the benefits of art therapy, and success stories from previous patients who have benefited from art therapy. Additionally, providers can use email marketing to promote new techniques or approaches implemented in art therapy sessions to improve patient outcomes.


How emails can promote art therapy

  • Educational campaigns: Providers can create informative emails to educate patients on the benefits of art therapy. They can incorporate compelling content to help patients learn how to engage in creative processes. These could reduce stress levels and improve emotional expression and self-discovery. Additionally, providing insights into the science behind art therapy can help dispel misconceptions and encourage patient interest.
  • Workshop and event invitations: Providers can email patients invitations to art therapy workshops, seminars, and events. Sending these event details, schedules, and registration information will help attract participants who are keen to attend. Providers can also include visually appealing graphics and testimonials from previous attendees to prompt individuals to attend workshops or events.
  • Community building: "Art therapy is a dynamic form of psychotherapy that can play an integral part in developing connections within the community. Art therapists may need to engage with the community to establish success.

Art Therapy Resources supports community engagement by encouraging providers to "make community connections with those who require mental health support, however, there are also organizations…in the community that can assist you in developing programs to their specific community group." Providers can further amplify these efforts by using emails to encourage participation in collaborative projects that promote mental well-being through artistic expression.

  • Feedback and engagement: Providers can use emails for two-way communications to gather feedback, testimonials, and participant suggestions. Furthermore, providers can email patients HIPAA complaint forms, like Paubox forms, to help them gather feedback efficiently.
  • Personalized outreach: Providers can send patients personalized emails using HIPAA compliant email marketing platforms to create tailored content. Patients can receive emails based on interests, demographics, and engagement levels. This approach can help improve patient engagement and satisfaction by delivering relevant information directly to their inbox. Additionally, providers can track email performance metrics to assess the effectiveness of their outreach efforts.
