Mental Health Film and Arts Festival Launched at Stormont

The Northern Ireland Mental Health Film and Arts Festival 2016 was recently launched at Parliament Buildings, Stormont, Belfast.

The theme for 2016 is ‘Tackling Stigma One Conversation at a Time’

The event took the format of a walk from the entrance to Stormont Estate to the steps at Parliament Buildings.

The participants held flags and banners with designs by service users from Holywell Hospital and Praxis Care Portadown, facilitated by local artist Ciara O’Malley and the Art and Soul Foundation.

Everyone signed up to a pledge to tackle stigma of mental health by continuing the conversations in their workplace, community and family settings.
