Lauren Saunders presented her recent research as part of the British Conference of Undergraduate Research. This event provides an opportunity for legislators and policy makers to see first-hand some of the innovative research taking place around the country. Lauren’s research was titled: ‘A Picture of Health: A multidisciplinary examination into the role of Art within meaningful Mental Health Recovery’. Drawing on both original and existing research, this recovery-orientated and person-centered discussion explores the relationships between mental health and the visual arts, applied both in and outside the clinical environment.
The Second Prize was awarded to Lauren by a panel of judges made up of leaders in the higher education field.
