Make Your Mark
"Make Your Mark is the arts and health programme for Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Founded in 2015, the programme delivers and supports a range of arts-based participatory learning opportunities for service users, staff and carers."
I have been working with a team of dedicated staff within the Trust since 2013, first as a service user and now as an artist within my own right. They have supported both my health and artistic journey and I am now able to contribute the future of their arts and health programme and the people they support.
