Create to heal
Accompanying children and adolescents hospitalized in Switzerland with art therapy and music therapy.
Begun more than ten years ago as timid pilot projects in a few Swiss hospitals, art therapy and music therapy programs have developed due to open minded hospitals, who understood the benefits of these activities on young patients. Thousands of children and their families can testify.
Today, this therapy has expanded as much in neonatal units as with those taking care of young adults affected by, for example, eating disorders.
Thus, applications for the funding of art therapy programs in other services and/ or in other hospitals are numerous and constantly increasing. This is why the six founding member hospitals decided to create their own non profit foundation, based in Geneva, to ensure the financing of therapists and to allow their experience to benefit other hospitals.
