Open Mind

Changing Attitudes - Realizing Potential

Every Tuesday 18:00

Open Mind is an innovative multi-media arts project providing people living with mental health issues a creative space to share their stories, gain new skills, confidence and build new relationships and networks. People with mental health illnesses are often isolated heavily dependent on one or two people for support. With reduction in traditional services and current budget restrictions new networks and collaborations are needed to support the most vulnerable. Real Time has developed a project which brings together professionals, community volunteers and those suffering from mental health issues to build a network of support and training utilising Participatory Video and digital media which will provide sustainable and expandable model for mental health support in the community.
