What is Arts in Health?
Arts in health is a field dedicated to using the power of the arts to enhance health and well-being in diverse institutional and community contexts.
Comprised of many subfields and affiliated fields, arts in health supports health as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Code of Ethics & Standards for Arts in Health Professionals
We’ve published NOAH-endorsed Code of Ethics and Standards for Arts in Health Professionals, foundational documents to further professionalization of the field.
