Art tackles the ‘Elephant in the Room’ with new exhibition

Tackling the stigma of mental health is the theme of a new art exhibition on display at the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre, Newry, created by the talented clients of Action Mental Health New Horizons Newry. The essence of the works of art portray the difficulties many people experience when opening up to their family, friends and work colleagues about their mental ill health.
The paintings and photographs on show will hopefully help stimulate conversations about ‘the elephant in the room’ – the issue of mental health – to help break the stigma. Everyone is very welcome to come along to enjoy the artistry, until the end of December. Chairperson of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, Roisin Mulgrew helped Brian Hughes of AMH Derriaghy launch the exhibition.
