Artwork from around 30 exhibitors including nurses and patients and depicting themes, thoughts, ideas and feelings related to the “Art of Caring” will be showcased at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) for three months following a preview this month.
Musicians and artists will contribute to an evening dedicated to highlighting the crucial value of art in the context of mental health recovery and wellbeing as part of C&I’s Medicine for Members programme of events.
We are hosting an employment support day to help our service users find the right job. Join us on Wednesday 27 January 2016 to find out about information on training, in work support, volunteering, employment options and benefits.
The Sewing Circle exhibition has been two years in the planning and now the wait is over. Twenty-four artists, both young and old, of all genders, using traditional and contemporary methods of needlework and sewing, have created a real time warp of the old and the new.
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 020 3317 6333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
