Norwich City College

City College Norwich students have crafted a quilt made up of 102 individual messages of hope as part of an interactive exhibition on mental health.

Each student came up with their own individual messages, including ‘Don’t judge someone’s story by the chapter you walk in on’ and ‘Life is too short to spend it at war with yourself’.

The finished quilt was designed by students on the Level 3 Health Studies and Level 3 Health and Social Care courses, and will go on display to students at the college this week.

Students on the two courses will also be engaging fellow City College students in activities linked to mental health and wellbeing, and will be fundraising for mental health charity MIND.

Former student Leah Cranswick, who led the project, said: “The students were really up for it. We hope the exhibition will get more students talking about mental health and help take away the stigma attached to it.”
