Addressing Mental Health
- 1998 - 2006
Below are some of our projects addressing mental health issues in the community.
Below are some of our projects addressing mental health issues in the community:
An exhibition using visual art, photography, installations, sound collages and sculpture commissioned by Homerton Hospital east wing and East London and the City Mental Health Trust.
The work was used as an environment to help workers from health, social services and youth teams to reconsider their attitude to people with mental health and drug problems.
Workers attended a day long training session that included spending time in the exhibition, meeting workers from other services, exploring attitudes and current practice and making suggestions for change.

Feeling Bad? (2005)
We worked in partnership with Off Centre to produce Feeling Bad?, a film following two days in the lives of Jason and Michelle. The film looked at how the experiences can shape behaviour and how other people see us. It explored strategies to cope with bad days and how to access advice and support.
Thoughts Allowed (2006)
This peer-led project explored mental health with young people in East London. Young people took part in 2 days of intensive training in facilitation and drama skills enabling them to deliver workshops around mental health issues. The young people were then supported to deliver workshops in youth settings across Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets.
'Thoughts Allowed' was developed in partnership with Young Minds, the national charity for children's mental health, and The Mellow Campaign, an East London mental health organisation targeting BME groups.
In October 2002 we were presented with a Community Care Award for our mental health work.
Being There (2006)
This one day introductory training event for education professionals raised awareness about the emotional wellbeing of vulnerable young people and provided a valuable opportunity to share experiences and identify best practice in a safe and confidential space.
In partnership with Off Centre (Hackney Young People's Counselling Service)
