Murals at Bury St Edmunds mental health unit help improve wellbeing
Peaceful murals are helping to improve wellbeing at a Bury St Edmunds mental health unit.
Patients at Wedgwood House have designed and painted murals of a mountain range, Caribbean beach, Hardwick Heath and a timeline of the heath’s 1,100-year history on blank walls in the unit’s television lounges and Southgate and Northgate wards.
The murals were created in partnership with not-for-profit social enterprise Art Branches, which works with vulnerable people to promote wellbeing through art.
Natalie Bailey, Wedgwood House matron, said: “The murals are really striking and have provided a fantastic splash of colour on the walls of our television lounges, which is helping to make the rooms feel homely and inviting.”
