VIVA Bahrain has recently announced the completion of its community-related renovation project at Bahrain’s psychiatric hospital, the main centre for psychiatric care in the country, which has been working to increase awareness of mental disability and promoting mental wellbeing for decades. The project focused on renovating the hospital’s garden area, which was designed by Art Reach, a non-profit group of artists and designers who volunteer their time and skills to work with students and community members to produce creative art installations in Bahrain. Plants and colorful mosaics were added to brighten up the space and create a happier environment for the hospital’s patients and visitors. A brand-new kids’ playground area has been installed to encourage outdoor activities and promote children’s physical development.
