Head Above Water Tackles Mental Stigma – it is dominating the skyline along the Thames

A dramatic change has been made to London’s South Bank. Head Above Water is a 9 metre high, interactive sculpture.

It’s put there by British designer Steuart Padwick who created the giant wooden head. His striking and powerful piece is in support of mental health. Steuart has had his ‘dark demons’ but creating the structure has helped him recognise there is help out there.

This captivating piece of public art supports, Time to Change, the nation’s mental health anti-stigma campaign.

One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year.  Many people still report being misunderstood by those around them. Time to Change will use the dynamic platform to challenge negative attitudes and stimulate public perception and understanding around mental health.

Also part of the London Design Festival and design junction 15 – 23 September. #HeadAboveWater
