Madlove: Probably the best mental health care in the world.

The vacuum cleaner is the name of a UK based artist who makes candid, provocative and playful art about the world being messed up. Drawing on his own experience of mental health disability, he works with groups including young people, health professionals and vulnerable adults to challenge how mental health is understood, treated and experienced.


Through his project Madlove, he has worked with over 500 people with lived experience to reimagine and deliver healthy environments and models of care. Over the last 5 years he has delivered designs and consultation for numerous NHS trusts, galleries and community spaces.
