Description

About Art Pharmacy

Art Pharmacy is a tech-enabled healthcare company that works with health plans, health systems, universities, and community partners to address the mental health crisis through social prescribing. In the face of the combined epidemics of loneliness and mental illness, Art Pharmacy was born out of desire to creatively impact mental healthcare in America. Put simply, we partner with health plans (insurers) and providers (doctors) to enable the prescription of arts and culture programming for anxiety, depression, and loneliness. The solution Art Pharmacy provides is innovative and for many a completely new type of treatment, but it is based one 40+ years of research and practice that have demonstrated the effectiveness that the arts & health field has on improving mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
