Helping teenagers in their journey towards recovery

The Long Gallery at the Maudsley Hospital shows how art can help teenagers in their journey towards recovery from mental illness in an exhibition running from 10 June – 26 September.

The Art of Recovery exhibition includes a powerful selection of art psychotherapy material, as well as inspiring examples from poetry and photography projects undertaken on Snowsfields Adolescent Unit. The Snowsfields service, based at the Maudsley Hospital, provides  inpatient and day care for young people experiencing  severe mental health crises.

Also on display are patient workshop material from the recent redecoration project sponsored by the Dulwich Picture Gallery and examples from CUESed, an exciting new project aimed at improving the emotional resilience and wellbeing of schoolchildren.

The Long Gallery was established in 2013 following a grant from the Maudsley Charity. The gallery space uses a reclaimed staff corridor that was previously locked and unused. The space is now open to everyone.

The Long Gallery is open from 9am to 7pm, Monday to Sunday.

The Long Gallery, Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, Camberwell, London, SE5 8AZ. Tel: 020 3228 2830
