what people say
So nice to see our community coming together and raising awareness of mental health. I was so impressed at how varied and inclusive the Festival was.
Freedom of Mind Choir
Every successful performance means a lot in terms of building confidence and self-esteem. It was clear as the choir left for home that this experience had been important and special for them.
I found that it genuinely did spark conversations about mental health - often between strangers and some I spoke to had never considered the importance of mental wellbeing before.
the whole community to engage with the arts and experience its benefits for mental health and wellbeing
to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing by providing a platform for sharing information and signposting, discussions and art experiences
