Mind in Camden is pleased to share its "Philosophy of Mind" podcast, based on a philosophy of mind workshop series which they ran in October 2017. It was a weekly group taking place over six weeks. It focused on sharing and using philosophical tools and ideas to talk about mental health; based on this, a Philosophy of Mind group has been launched in HMP Pentonville.

Studio Upstairs provides a place for people to express their talents through the arts who, for reasons of mental health difficulties or emotional distress, choose not to participate in traditional arts institutions. Providing artistic resources and education within a therapeutic community setting, we challenge the stigma and prejudice projected onto those experiencing mental and emotional distress.
We currently offer memberships to our 'community art group', 'performance group' and our 'therapeutic art groups' at the studio. Please find more details on our website.
