Things and the mind: students' graphic memoir of material things that mediate their mental health experiences

Project: Research


“Things and the mind” project is an UKRI/ESRC awarded project, about student mental health research and development, a part of the biggest UK network on student mental health - Smarten .

It applies an art-based participatory method, where students have a central role from the beginning until the end. The project is explored and co-created by students, giving them the needed agency to narrate their experiences and choose how they will be represented.

This research will generate student-created graphic memoir and develop a better understanding of material culture and the role of a relational approach to student well-being, exploring materiality and socio-materiality in and of student mental health.
