Look out for inspirational poetry exploring mental health and wellbeing from our local school children.

The subject of mental health used to be considered taboo, which only added to the dreadful feelings of isolation and despair felt by those suffering from mental illness... those like me. I live with Bipolar Disorder.

Thankfully though, with initiatives such as the Bearsden Festival, we can raise awareness, educate and inspire.

 

By coming together as a community, we are doing our bit to end the stigma, and reach out a hand of support to those around us, whilst enjoying the benefits that the arts can bring to wellbeing and continued recovery.
