WomenCentre launch new exhibition at Mental Health Museum


A local women’s centre is launching a new guest exhibition at the Mental Health Museum in Wakefield on 10 December 2014.

WomenCentre provides emotional and practical support to women at centres in across Calderdale and Kirklees.

Their Mothers Apart project, which is funded by Kirklees Council, NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group explores the link between mental health and mothers living apart from their children.

As part of the exhibition WomenCentre will be promoting their ‘In Our Hearts’ book, written for and by mothers who live apart from their children.

The museum, run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has co-curated the exhibition with WomenCentre as part of its regular changing exhibition programme.

Cara Sutherland, curator at the museum said, “We’re really excited to welcome WomenCentre to the museum. Their work makes a huge difference to the local community and I’d encourage anyone who is interested in finding out more about mental health to come down and visit the museum.”

Angela Everson, chief executive of WomenCentre said “We welcome this fantastic opportunity to share one of the many strands of our WomenCentre work more widely, and we thank the museum for providing us with this opportunity.”
