Enhancing the mental healthcare environment

2 June 2010

A Willis Newson arts in mental health project, Moving On, was evaluated by a research team at the University of the West of England. A paper about this evaluation study, written by the UWE team, featured in April 2010’s "Design and Health Scientific Review", published by the International Academy of Design and Health (IADH). A copy can be downloaded here. You can further explore the work of the IADH at http://www.worldhealthdesign.com/.

Both Moving On and another Willis Newson project, Arts at Callington Road, were also the subjects of full evaluations by UWE. More information about this can be found on the project pages of this website.

You can also find out more about these and other projects at the BBH Enhancing Mental Health Environments 2010 conference on 30th June where Willis Newson director, Jane Willis will be discussing processes, impacts and outcomes of arts in mental health projects.
