Brought to PHM by Recovery Pathways, a Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust service, this exhibition is a vibrant and varied selection of art works embodying issues of mental health through different media such as ceramics, textiles, photography, illustration, wire sculpture, painting and drawing.
All work has been created using wellbeing themed sessions and projects by Recovery Pathways service users in a number of locations across Greater Manchester.
According to the recommendations from the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing Inquiry Report, July 2017:
‘We talked, talked and talked about our journey and what a difference our creative development has aided and helped many of us. Big thank you NHS and our wonderful tutors.’
