dc.description.abstractThe study examined the effects of museum outreach sessions on confidence, sociability and well-being measures for mental health (n = 85) and addiction recovery (n = 59) service-users taking an asset-based approach and research design. Method: Both groups participated in weekly outreach sessions combining object handling and museum visits with arts and craft activities. Using mixed methods, measures of confidence, sociability and well-being were evaluated quantitatively through a “ladder of change” model of steps towards independence and feedback was analysed qualitatively. Results: Comparison of scores from first, mid- and last sessions showed increases across all measures. Qualitative analysis revealed additional gains including pride, learning and skills, and creativity. Findings were interpreted in terms of social capital, independence and resilience. Conclusions: Creative museum activities showed increases in participant levels of confidence, sociability and well-being. The study highlighted the potential of asset-based approaches augmenting research on the value of museum activities to health and well-beingen
