We are a team of Clinical and Developmental Psychologists based at the University of Edinburgh and Anglia Ruskin University. Our mission is to develop a bank of soothing photographs that can be shared with others to improve mental health and wellbeing. We believe that Project Soothe is a unique and innovative project that combines world-leading research with public engagement.
