ARTISTS from East London have been taking part in a public exhibition at City Hall as part of a campaign to end mental health discrimination.

Groups from Tower Hamlets and Newham played host to London Assembly member John Biggs for the exhibition of artwork by those using the Mind mental health charity services.

The charity encouraged them to create art to go on public show for 'Time For Change' week which aims to end mental health discrimination and for World Mental Health Day on October 10.

"Many of these people would not have had the confidence or chance to get involved in such a project before," said Biggs, who represents East London on the Assembly.

"This exhibition shows the valuable work that Mind does in Tower Hamlets and Newham, bringing people together, creating friendships and discovering new talents."

The free art exhibition runs until October 23 at City Hall in Queens Walk, near Tower Bridge.
