Health in Mind, the free NHS service for anyone in East Sussex experiencing emotional or psychological difficulties, is looking for donations of paintings or photography to brighten up the walls of their new therapy rooms in Crowborough.
As part of their efforts to increase face-to-face appointments, they have converted one big space in Crowborough to create four new therapy rooms.
Following Covid, they’ve been working on ways to increase capacity. They have several projects like this across East Sussex, but this one at Grove House near Crowborough Hospital, is now reaching completion.
Although many people access their therapies remotely and find that convenient, they know that for others, talking to a trained therapist in person is what they need.
The staff thought it would be nice to engage the Crowborough community in helping to make these new therapy rooms a more calm and welcoming environment for local people to use. It could be an old framed print or examples of your own art or photography.
If you would like to offer a piece of art for the walls of the therapy rooms please email Laura Oak firstname.lastname@example.org
