Mental Health Artist in Residence, Lou Gannon

Thanks to the generosity of donors, CCH has been able to offer an Artist in Residency project in the Mental Health unit of the RAH.

Local artist, Lou Gannon, working in collaboration with RAH Occupational Therapists and Mental Health staff, has guided clients in creating art on jigsaw pieces which fit together to create completed pieces of work. The first work completed was at the former RAH site and the next will be created at the new RAH site, linking the two sites through the art work.

The works will eventually be hung in the new mental health area, complementing the work integrated into the building of the unit and other patient work already displayed.
