Winner of 'the workings of my mind' art competition

During the summer, we teamed up with online art gallery CultureLabel to run an exclusive art competition for our Mind members.

Inspired by artist David Shillinglaw who has used his mental health to influence his work, we asked entrants to create a piece of art reflecting the workings of their mind.

We had a great number of admissions and the level of artwork and creativity was remarkable. So thank you if you took part, we really loved looking at all the entries.

Would you like to get access to more competitions like this one as well as becoming part of an amazing community fighting for change?

Become a Mind member today. Joining us is easy and costs from as little as £2.17 a month.
