ACC Weekly Round-up

Over the past couple of months our students have been focusing on what we do best! Being creative. Creativity has all sorts of benefits that can improve mental health. Aside from keeping you busy during the long days, creative outlets can be a fantastic way of expressing your thoughts and feelings, making connections with others and strengthening your skill sets. Check out what some of our students have created.
