Welcome to the
Crowngate Art Trail

Welcome to Crowngate’s Talking Portraits art trail, an interactive trail of graffiti artwork around the centre. The art aims to spread positivity whilst removing the stigma around mental health and highlighting the support available.


The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and Onside Advocacy support people in the community struggling with their mental health and have reached out to eight local people who have experienced living with mental health difficulties.


The trail forms an uplifting story about resilience and standing firm, with people sharing their experiences of suffering with grief, illness and postnatal depression. The stories share the different approaches people have taken for dealing with their mental health.
