The first mental health-awareness audio tour of the National Gallery launched on World Mental Health Day, 10th October 2019. The tour draws on young people’s experiences of mental health and connects these with the Gallery’s paintings in order to challenge common myths about mental health.
Researchers from King’s College London and the McPin Foundation have co-created the audio tour with a group of young people including some affected by mental health issues, alongside members of the Gallery’s Young Producers programme. The Medical Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation, have funded the tour, available free to visitors for 6 months.
