About the Gem Project

With your help, we aim to help tackle the stigma surrounding mental health by producing prints, which allow the expression of this meaningful topic through creativity. Our aim is to engage, inspire and educate, whilst raising money for partner organisations with the proceeds from the sales of prints.

Why We’re Launching Gem

¾

Gem Prints - Launching Soon

A group of artists will design and produce limited edition prints symbolising life and humanity.

Each design will encompass the personality of each artist and their positive take of life. We hope the prints will inspire, educate and engage society to raise awareness of mental health and raise money for Mind.

The prints will be launching soon, so you can keep up to date as each one is revealed by signing up to our newsletter.

Mind Matters

The Gem project has partnered with Mind. Mind provide advice and support to help empower anyone who is experiencing mental health issues.

Profits from the sale of all Gem prints will be donated to Mind to help them continue to raise awareness, understanding and promote services on offer to those in need who deserve support and respect.
