Do you think art in mental health treatment centers can be harmful ? If so, why and how?

I am a Cottage Studio artist. One time I was admitted into the hospital and to my surprise I was face to face with one of my paintings I did, called recovery, on the TV room wall. My painting showed the different stages of recovery and it took on a whole new appreciation for it. It helped me in my recovery for it showed me the way to get better by each stage helping the next in order to get better.My painting became my aid.
