Our main objectives are to raise awareness of mental health illness and reduce stigma of mental health and promote wellbeing and good health. We are a creative project and use creative work from those with lived experience. We are making a film about mental health with lots of great interviews arranged for when restrictions of lockdown ease and we will also make a few poetry and spoken word films. On our project website we will have health related blogs and articles and lots of poetry, art , photography, music videos and creative work from those with lived experience of mental health and health related conditions. We aim to inspire and show a positive side of mental health and make films to raise awareness of mental health. We need funds to operate the project and this will cover the wordpress website hosting for 2 years, make the main film plus 3-5 poetry and spoken word films and to hold 4 community events each year to allow people to come together and share their creativity.

What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We will inspire people and people will be able to gain insight and relate to those with mental health illness and we will reduce stigma and promote wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle. We can raise awareness of mental health issues and will be based in Hertfordshire yet reach a large Audience around the UK and beyond. We can promote wellbeing and health related topics to motivate and encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle. We can empower service users to gain confidence and be a positive part of the community. We will hold community events to bring local people together and reduce loneliness and isolation and our informative approach can lead to positive outcomes. We can promote wellbeing and showcase creativity from those with lived experience of mental health illness and have a strong network across Hertfordshire and include links to other charities and organisations to enable people to find local groups and support that will be of benefit and interest to people struggling.
