Special project idea for Psychiatric hospital?
I am a final year Social Work student doing my internship at a Psychiatric hospital. I have to do a project at the hospital while there but I am finding it hard to come up with something.

Thanks Please bare in mind that the project must be geared toward the patients who suffer from mental illnesses.
