Print on Prescription
The Conversation Station – formerly known as Print on Prescription. Double Elephant has run printmaking workshops with adults with mental health problems for several years. Our last project was called Print on Prescription or POP – whereby mental health service users could be referred to printmaking by their GPs.
Here is a short film about the project. It uses kitchen litho and was made by our long term collaborator – the very excellent Josh Gaunt of Workshops n Docs : http://www.workshopsndocs.co.uk/

The film can also be seen at a forthcoming event called Made in Mind and is taking place at the Warehouse, Waterloo on 5th September with a lineup of film, performance, talks and music all to raise awareness of mental health conditions and to raise money for Mind.
