Artistic Expression

Artistic expression aids our clients along the path of self-actualization.

The creative process gives adolescents a way to express concepts that they may be unable to otherwise communicate. Through art, young people may learn to symbolize and process the sources of deep-seated psychological pain and emotional conflicts that underly mental health conditions and spur the misuse of substances. The Turnbridge Adolescent Program encourages clients to develop and strengthen creative skills, to become more expressive individuals, and to discover their authentic selves through artistic expression.
