Avoid SAD and let art be your escape

UK-BASED non-profit 64 Million Artists will be hosting its tenth January Challenge in 2023, an initiative where participants take up a series of creative challenges throughout the month to boost mental health and well-being amid post-holiday blues and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

According to the NHS, around two million people in the UK experience SAD, a type of seasonal depression prevalent in the winter months, every year.

As people return to work and return to a comparatively less busy schedule with fewer social opportunities, they may also experience post-holiday blues or lower mental well-being.
