Working Without Words – Acute Mental Health

Organisation : Meadow Ward, Royal Edinburgh Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 2,000
Project Dates : November 2015 to February 2016

A pilot to evaluate the potential benefits and value of providing Arts Therapies psychological input on Meadow ward, including weekly open groups which patients, carers and staff can all participate in.

We would hope to see participants experimenting with alternative and additional forms of communication, which in turn would offer relief to distress, lower affect, improve relationships and improve self esteem.
