Develop and provide activity packs for service users (aged between 18 and 65) within the Acute Mental Health Service

Organisation : Acute Occupational Therapy Department, Royal Edinburgh Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 499
Project Dates : July 2013 to January 2014

The proposed project is to develop and provide activity packs for service users (aged between 18 and 65) within the Acute Mental Health Service.

Activity packs have previously been developed by Occupational Therapy staff, in response to patients’ requests for creative materials such as paper and pencils. This had led to the development of card making, puzzle, and relaxation packs.

The packs were also offered to service users who were too unwell to attend Occupational Therapy groups or to leave the ward environment, allowing them to engage in therapeutic activity on the ward.
