Hospital Rooms is delighted to announce the 6 mental health units that we will be working with in 2019 with support from Arts Council England, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Isabella Blow Foundation, the Little Something charity and fashion brand Seasalt Cornwall. After a competitive application process, the units were selected for their commitment to transforming their clinical environments with extraordinary artworks and eagerness to engage patients and staff in a creative collaboration with world class artists.

We commission world class artists to work with mental health patients and staff to radically transform locked and secure mental health units with museum quality and compliant art.
Our artists work in partnership with patients, staff and the wider community through art workshops, events and discussions.
Together, we make challenging clinical environments imaginative, thoughtful and rejuvenative.
Without Hospital Rooms, mental health hospitals will remain spaces that offer little comfort, and the quality of care and patients’ well-being will be compromised. Opportunities to be inspired and engage in the arts will continue to be severely limited for people with acute mental illness. Without your generosity, we simply could not do what we do. We urgently need your support to meet the unprecedented demand for Hospital Rooms’ projects.
