Studies for Mind Photography Print Sale with all proceeds going to Support in Mind Midday 24th June – 24th July
Studies for Mind is a month-long fundraising sale of photographic prints by leading photographers with all proceeds going to Support in Mind: a Scottish charity providing crucial support and resources for those suffering from mental health problems.
As the impact of coronavirus continues to unfold, it is clear that people’s mental health has suffered and will continue to suffer as a result. It is a pleasure to be able to help support resources devoted to improving mental health in Scotland.
Support in Mind is a charity that provides crucial support for people living with mental health difficulties across Scotland. During the Coronavirus pandemic they are helping people who are struggling with increased isolation due to social distancing, and who are becoming increasingly fearful about what it could mean in the longterm.
They provide information, advice and practical help as well as referrals to required health services for both highly functioning sufferers of mental health problems and those with serious mental illnesses. As a charity they are committed to improving quality of life, supporting people and fighting for people’s rights.
Support in Mind‘s services in Edinburgh are based in The Stafford Centre: a community resource for people experiencing mental ill health. They have been helping people to manage their mental health, gain greater self-confidence and become more integrated within the community for the past 30 years.
Everyone at Support in Mind Scotland is incredibly excited to be involved in this imaginative and unique fundraiser, which will benefit not only our Edinburgh service, The Stafford Centre, but also our work across the country. Huge thanks go to the team at Studies in Photography, as well as all the talented photographers who are taking part and have kindly donated their work. We can’t wait to see the amazing photography on show!Iain Mitchell from Support in Mind

I was aware of similar sales of work at the beginning of lockdown and thought it would be great to bring the Studies in Photography network together to raise awareness and funds for this invaluable support resource in Scotland.
As well as raising money for this important charity, the project promotes the sale of photography enabling people to buy outstanding photographs by well known photographers at an affordable price. We extend our thanks to the photographers who have kindly donated their work.Rebecca Milling, sale organiser
