One in four people will develop a mental health problem at some point during their lives. Mental distress can range from mild depression or anxiety to conditions such as bipolar disorder (manic depression) or schizophrenia where individuals may experience psychosis.
The Institute of Mental Health was launched in 2006 to help transform our understanding and treatment of mental illness. We are a partnership between Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust and the University of Nottingham and we are one of the leading mental health institutes in the UK, offering leadership and innovation backed by world class expertise.
A new sculpture by Ekkehard Altenburger has been commissioned to mark the opening of the new Institute of Mental Health building on Jubilee Campus.
Full background information about the sculpture, entitled House for a Gordian Knot, is contained within the official sculpture official unveiling brochure and press release.
Videos of the sculpture being delivered and installed are available on the Institute's Vimeo website.
