Connecting the Community - Highlight through a segment of map of Carlow Town - to make the community aware of drop in centres providing support and mental health services. This project was designed and executed by service users at Supported Services Training within St. Dympna's Hospital in collaboration with local mosaic artist: Simone Webb. The design itself was intended as an informative and motivational tool. Its main function to “Connect the Community”. Participants used mosaic tiles to create a visual map of St. Dympna's Campus and its immediate townland as an effective way to capture and engage peoples attention. Through collaboration it was decided that brightly coloured mosaic tiles would make it easier for the view/audience to identify areas of interest and support. Colour coding categories also made it possible to implement a Legend (key) for ease of interpretation.
