Local people invited to unique art exhibition


South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is inviting people to a unique art exhibition at Wakefield Cathedral, created by people who have mental health problems.

The art exhibition, ‘Creative Minds’, will open on Tuesday 12th October and run until Friday 15th October at Wakefield Cathedral, Northgate, Wakefield.

The Creative Minds exhibition will showcase artwork created by people at Newton Lodge in Wakefield, a facility that provides care in a secure environment for people from across the Yorkshire and Humber region.

The Bretton centre, which provides care under low secure conditions, will also showcase their work alongside acute inpatient services at Fieldhead hospital, Cloverleaf Advocacy Project and Garden Street day services. The theme of the art work is ‘difference’.

The Trust’s deputy chief executive Alex Farrell said "The Trust is delighted to exhibit this work as a celebration of the many creative activities that take place across our services. The exhibition is part of the Trust’s wellbeing month which is an opportunity for us to raise awareness, reduce stigma and promote wellbeing through creative activities. "

Wellbeing month is running throughout October. Over 200 events and activities have been planned to take place across Wakefield, Calderdale and Kirklees. The events are designed to boost people’s mental and/ or physical wellbeing.

For information on the events taking place during wellbeing month including dates and times, visit the Trust’s website at www.southwestyorkshire.nhs.uk
