Patient-led animation marks countdown to new adolescent mental healthcare facility
Tuesday 8 Nov 2016
Early in 2017, the Adolescent Pathway at St Andrew's will be moving to FitzRoy House, a new, state-of-the-art facility to care for 110 young people aged 13-18.
The new building will feature many outdoor courtyards, ground-breaking therapy suites, an Outstanding college and plenty of sports and recreational facilties from a music room to indoor sports hall.
Our young people have worked closely to create a fantastic new video to showcase all these innovative features. Voiced by one of our patients, who also helped to storyboard and script the video, the film uses animation to bring FitzRoy to life.
Young people at St Andrew's play an important role in showcasing how we work with out patients and help to transform lives. Together, we're seeking to address the ongoing stigma attached to mental illness in the world today.
The 'In our own words' video below, also released in 2016, gives a voice to our patients and how they view their time with us.
