Constantine is a visual artist who works with paint. His studio space is now funded by the NHS to help him with his mental health. "Before I had the studio I used to feel worthless being on disability benefit, in and out of hospital, it was as if I had no purpose. A nurse recognised that I draw all the time and suggested I get a studio, since then it has given me something to get up for in the morning and when I feel bad I can come down the studio to express myself."
