A new exhibition of artwork by those who attend AMH New Horizons has opened at Clotworthy House, Antrim Castle Gardens.
The exhibition, entitled The Art of Recovery, was opened by Cllr Roisin Lynch of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, on Monday 9th October 2023.
There are a range of artworks on display in the Conservatory Gallery, including paintings, sketches, photographs and artworks made using wool.
The exhibition opening began a busy week of events for the Antrim service, which marked World Mental Health Day with the launch of its Chatty Bench, and closed out the week with a client certificate presentation attended by representatives of Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and Northern Health & Social Care Trust; both organisations provide funding for programmes provided by AMH New Horizons in Antrim.
Thanks to this vital funding, Action Mental Health is able to provide services to individuals who experience mental ill health and help them on their road to recovery. Individuals benefit from a variety of personal development, vocational skills and employability training, including the new SkillSET programme that is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
The Art of Recovery Exhibition will run until 31st October 2023, admission is FREE.
