Carol Bristow, who works at Guild Lodge in Whittingham, a Secure Mental Health Service under the auspices of the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, has invented a board game that is meant to empower mental health patients by assessing their thoughts on, and familiarizing them, modern mental health care.

The game will be launched at Innovation Live 08, a conference on innovations in health care, on November 12. Carol will also be presenting a paper on the results of the board game at the Design & Emotion conference in Hong Kong.

She won seed money from NESTA, the National Endowment for Science, Technology, and the Arts, to turn the idea into a produced game. You can watch her talk about the game here.
