Freedom of Mind 2018

5 — 12 October 2018

Freedom of Mind opens up discussion around mental health and wellbeing through a series of events across Bristol. They look at all aspects of what mental health means and by doing this, create conversation, education and change.

Freedom of Mind emerged from a single conversation. Two young people with lived experience, frustrated by mental health stigma and an increasing problem amongst peers wanted to do something different. To make mental health accessible for everyone, something to celebrate, and bring it into the light.

In 2016 the first Freedom of Mind festival took place, a week-long series of events around the Bristol area and since then has become an annual occurrence. These events are about encouraging conversations, educating each other, and creating change to reduce stigma and increase support regarding mental health.

Talking about mental health doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, and they strive to make sure that discussions at our events are fun and engaging, interactive and eclectic. In previous years they’ve had panels, talks, performance, film showings and more – there’s something for everyone.

Find out what’s on this year by visiting the calendar on the Freedom of Mind website.
