A fee may apply for this service
What do we offer? 

Portugal Prints is an artist community within Mind in Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster. Together, we make art to build better lives.

We support artists living with mental health difficulties to construct a life beyond the services, a life of creativity and curiosity. We believe that art can empower people to express themselves, to learn, to build resilience and to nurture meaningful relationships.

Our friendly and supportive team come from a range of backgrounds in art and mental health. In collaboration with our artists, we run art sessions at the Portugal Prints studio as well as offering gallery visits, one-to-one support and development opportunities.

We endeavour to provide holistic support that is practical, emotional and creative.

Who should use this service? 
Portugal Prints is for people struggling with mental health difficulties who enjoy art. You do not need to have any experience in art or you may have a lot of experience and want to come back to art. Our artists’ interests and backgrounds vary widely.

To join Portugal Prints, we ask that you have current contact with Mental Health Services, i.e you will need a Care Plan Approach (CPA) or a personal budget, though we also take self-referrals.
