k u .co. mind our y think re #IFeelBetterWhen Thank you 120 Supporting your mental health - Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust Arts in Mental Health We employ two arts in mental health Co-ordinators who have developed artistic opportunities for our service users, to improve their experience and support their health and wellbeing. This has included running and supporting a variety of arts, music, writing and comedy workshops; creating working partnerships between the Trust and mainstream artistic organisations; improving hospitals and other health environments through arts and advocating for the use of the arts in promoting good physical and mental wellbeing. Look out for them on our wards and units! We are very grateful to Lydia Towsey, the National Chair for the rethinkyourmind Poetry Assessor Panel, who has been involved with this project from the start. She works part time as one of the LPT Arts in Mental Health co- ordinators alongside Tim Sayers & many of the winning entries were created during these workshops. We would like to extend thanks to Dr Peter Miller Chief Executive at Leicester Partnership NHS Trust, Kamy Basra, Head of Communications at Leicestershire Partnership Trust and the team at LPT who supported the running of the project to enable the creation of the 1st NHS Yellow Book! Special mention to Teresa Smith and Ed Beasley who have since left the Trust for being instrumental in this collaboration. Thank you to all those from Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland who contributed, coached, supported, assessed and facilitated this project! www.rethinkyourmind.co.uk/the-lpt-yellow-book-2017 Notes from rethinkyourmind:
