Human Library – Creativity and Mental Health

The Human Library is an international equalities movement that challenges prejudice and discrimination through social contact. It uses the language and mechanism of a library to facilitate respectful conversations that can positively change people’s attitudes and behaviours towards members of our communities who are at risk of exclusion and marginalisation. http://humanlibraryuk.org/

I am a senior clinical psychologist in NHS Children’s services (CAMHS), and was, during the Fellowship, a Research Associate at Arts for Health at Manchester Metropolitan University. I have worked in several university psychology research departments including the Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research at Lancaster University, notable for its service user involvement, and on the Dementia & Imagination research programme. My research has explored links between arts, health and well-being and I have shared this work in a variety of forums and to diverse audiences.
