Young People’s Festival of Ideas

Let's Talk About Mental Health

Mental Health Banner Nov 2015
Wed 11 November 2015,

At this event, the last of the second series, we once again create a platform for young people to engage in debate and challenge ideas around an important issue.

This event will explore mental health and how it affects the lives of young people today:
Are we talking about mental health enough?
What do you think of casual stereotyped use of mental illnesses to describe personality traits?
Do you think prejudice against people with mental illness affects people as much as homophobia or racism?
How do events in the media affect people’s perception of mental illness?

The panel:
Laura Brain, Off The Record
Jonny Benjamin, Mental Health Campaigner, author and vlogger
Tanaka Chigwada
Ailsa Fineron, Writer and Photographer

The event is open to all: FREE for Under 25s (£5/£3 for 25+)

YPFoI is a partnership between Festival of Ideas, Salaam Shalom, Arnolfini and Rising Arts Agency.
