Dr Humera Iqbal, Lecturer in Psychology, Department of Social Science, Institute of Education, in collaboration with Dean Veall, Learning and Access Officer, Grant Museum of Zoology, Professional Services, and Dr Katie Quy, Lecturer in Psychology, Department of Social Science, Institute of Education explored what impact using ideas from museum spaces and creative practice had on young people based at psychiatric inpatient settings.
The project asked how can we foster a sense of belonging in young people with mental health needs in inpatient hospital settings a) to wider society (and a connection to the outside world) b) within the unit as a space of wellbeing?
