BODY WORLDS, the central London attraction featuring human bodies, has teamed up with the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust for a new initiative: Mental Health Matters.
The initiative is designed to raise awareness, increase understanding and educate the general public on the importance of mental health.
To highlight Mental Health Awareness Week (13th – 19th May) BODY WORLDS London and C&I are launching a range of activities, talks and installations within the museum; all centred around three different but equally important components of the human body, Mind, Body and Soul.
It kicks off with the Mental Health Matters Trail, an interactive guide to understanding mental health and the impact it has on your physical health, that runs throughout the museum. On Sunday 19th May, there will also be a talk with an NHS professional on Coping with Stress.
BODY WORLDS exhibitions are the most successful travelling exhibitions in the world. On display since 1995, they have attracted more than 47 million visitors in over 130 cities across America, Africa, Asia, and Europe.
Permanent BODY WORLDS exhibitions can currently be found in Amsterdam, Guben, Berlin, Heidelberg and London, with no fewer than seven more travelling exhibitions currently found all over the world.
