CHILD'S PLAY

'Child's Play' urges for the re-introduction of a new national play strategy which halts the closing of playgrounds and defends children's rights to play. In late January 2017 the book was disseminated to key policy makers, experts and each of the UK’s 433 local councils, and a symposium on 20 March 2017 explored the issue of spaces for play, looking at the real and imagined barriers to play in our cities, and focusing in particular on the privatisation of space. http://foundlingmuseum.org.uk/events/childs-play/ http://www.newyorker.com/culture/photo-booth/mark-nevilles-immersive-photo-experiment https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2017/jan/31/childs-play-photography-mark-neville-interview http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20170209-the-mysterious-power-of-childrens-play https://www.timeout.com/london/art/childs-play

BATTLE AGAINST STIGMA

The Battle Against Stigma Book Project aims to challenge the stigma of mental health problems in the military and to encourage attitude change in order to facilitate help seeking at an early stage, without people being stigmatised. The Battle Against Stigma book, co-authored by Neville and veteran mental health expert Jamie Hacker Hughes, is divided into two-volumes. The first volume is the re-telling of Neville’s own personal experience when he was sent out to Helmand in 2011 as an official war artist. This book uses imagery he made whilst he was out in Helmand and back in the UK. Accompanying these photographs is a written account of his time living in a war zone. Neville combines his photographs and texts as a means to give some insight into the issue of adjustment disorder which he found he had fallen victim to on his return from the war zone. The second volume is made-up of the written testimonies about PTSD and adjustment disorder from serving and ex-serving soldiers. Neville and Hacker Hughes will use the two-volume book as an impetus in their crusade to challenge the stigma of mental health problems in the military. Neville has disseminated 1,000 copies free to Defence Mental Health Services, prison libraries, homeless veterans, probation services, and veteran mental health charities. Professor Hacker Hughes is using the book as a teaching tool on his course at Anglia Ruskin University which studies Veteran mental health. The book is being disseminated free throughout 2015, and is commercially unavailable.
