[p][b][i]Mental Health “Covid-19 Healing Art”[/i][/b] is a scheme designed to support NHS mental health staff and patients during the coronavirus crisis. Covid-19 is having a massive impact on people’s mental health and the essential care that NHS staff are providing. Patients are facing the prospect of being unable to have friends or family visit them both whilst in hospital and in their homes, often facing isolation and loneliness. Many people are facing pressures of financial uncertainty, while children are unable to go to school and socialise with friends. These are all things we know will a huge impact on peoples' mental health, not just in the here and now but also in the long term too. The Maudsley Charity is working with front line NHS services at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust to support hospital and community mental health services, caring for people across South London and the UK. We want to support the immediate and long term consequences of the crisis to prevent and treat mental illness for both adults and children. [/p][p][b]How the Gallery is supporting the appeal:[/b][/p][p]We have designed a scheme for all commercial galleries, online art platforms and auction houses to support the outstanding work of the NHS at this critical time. We will offer a major dealer discount on all artworks to encourage collectors to continue investment and support the art market. We are encouraging buyers to donate 10% of the agreed sale price of each artwork directly into the “Mental Health Covid19 Healing Art” set up to help support mental health patients and staff coping with the impact of the pandemic. All donations will go directly to Maudsley Charity in support of vital mental health work during and following the crisis. [/p]
