Our vision is for all people in mental health wards to have the freedom to experience extraordinary artworks. We believe in the power of art to provide joy and dignity and to stimulate and heal.
“Art captures something beautiful that the world can’t destroy. Art is everlasting”
-Service User, Bluebell Lodge

Not a Patient but a Person
This film follows Turner Prize nominated artist Mark Titchner in the creation of an artwork for the Jasmine Lodge, a mother and baby mental health unit that provides care for new mothers who experience serious mental health episodes and keeps them together with their babies whilst they recover.

Without Hospital Rooms, mental health hospitals will remain spaces that offer little comfort, and the quality of care and patient’s well-being will be compromised.
