Hardships of Being Human - a Festival of Mental Health

A celebration of the hardships and difficulties of being human. The day aims to make space to explore mental health through speakers, workshops, film, art and poetry. We aim to give time and compassion to human hardships, raise awareness and challenge stigma, promote wellbeing and inspire. 

One in three of us will experience a mental health issue, so this festival is open to all; anyone curious about mental health, Wellbeing and hardships, we aim to make space for discussions on subjects we all could experience and so we welcome all: students, people with personal experience of mental health distress, practitioners, artists, clinicians and front line workers.
