South Coast Private Annual Patient Art Exhibition 2016

As part of Mental Health Week 2016, South Coast Private hosted our patient artwork exhibition at the hospital to recognise the tremendous work undertaken by patients through our art therapy classes. A presentation evening took place at the hospital and patient’s families, carers and South Coast Private staff joined in the celebration of these original works of art covering our patient’s journeys towards recovery.

It was a tremendous turn out and we thank our patients for their honesty and enthusiasm in crafting these pieces of art and allowing them to be displayed around the hospital.

We would also like to recognise and thank our Art Therapists and Volunteer Carers whose dedication and perseverance makes our Art Therapy program a fundamental part of the mental health recovery process.
