The Big Scream event alerts Bury St Edmunds to mental health issues for young people
A special event in Bury town centre has brought the message home about mental health in a unique and powerful way.
Fine Not Fine used a series of art workshops to recreate The Scream by Edvard Munch on Saturday.
The Big Scream event follows the launch of the Fine Not Fine campaign spearheaded by Sasha Campbell, 18, who has been treated for mental health issues.
Fine Not Fine calls for more early intervention to help young people struggling with mental health issues.
Sasha's mum Jordanna said: " There is an overwhelming need for mental health support in our community. There is not enough money, resources and not enough people working in the system."
Some 16 artists worked with the public inviting them to create their own version of the iconic artwork. They also ran workshops and mental health professionals were on hand to speak to people.
The Scream, was created in clay, mini screams were written out and drawn and photographs depicted people's views of the matter
Sasha was among the artists alongside her friend Millie Cooke-Wharton. The artwork will be auctioned and Jordanna plans a further event at The Hunter Club on October 10 -World Mental Health Day featuring young bands and performance poets.
The event was supported by West Suffolk Council and Our Bury St Edmunds.
