Journaling Project

Journaling Project

Writing in a journal can help relieve stress and promote well-being. Specially trained volunteers visit with patients in several hospital units to provide journals and suggestions for using them. The journals were made possible by a gift from Epic Systems.

In the journals, an insert is provided that includes writing tips and ideas to help the patient get started.

This is Carrington Kay checking in after our first month as Healing Arts Artists-in-Residence. It is truly incredible that a month has passed, but even more so because of the amazing giving and receiving found within it because of the Healing Arts.

I met her on 10 South—oncology and palliative care—in January, soon after I started as artist-in-residence. Some patients are hesitant to work with me (I’m not an artist, they’ll say. Oh, I can’t draw at all.). Even after I assure them that my kind of art is about the process, because, well, actually I’m a writer, they’re still unsure.
 Not Mrs. B.
