I feel as though the constant need to conform to social norms is such a huge pressure to deal with. This among other ultra social factors in my opinion, have contributed to an increase in mental health (now one in four). Too many people for me are suffering in silence with the taboo and stigma surrounding mental health. Although more focus is now on the issue, its been driven down a one way street for treatment which can sometimes be daunting. I want to create a centre for those having to deal with the constant pressure of social norms and those who choose to live their life how THEY want it to be. Rather than see it as a problem, I would like to channel the sub-conscious negatives and rewire them into positive brainwaves. This will hopefully allow individuals to get the answers they need without having to be dissected.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Seeing my younger brother struggle daily with his depression and anxiety from an early age, is a huge factor in why the Deeper Mind Creative hub needs to exist. He's had to take medication and attend counselling for years to try and help his mental state. Although he has came such a long way, the thing that seems to help the most is being involved in more "social positives" (days out, live music, art exhibitions etc). We already have good links within the Liverpool creative zone (Baltic triangle) and have sourced a number of thought provoking art exhibitions from around the globe. We have touched base with "time to change" mental health charity who are interested in connecting with us to improve the daily experience of those dealing with the challenges people may face.
Steps to get it done:
the hub will comprise of a number of different areas to appeal to all who attend. We will have an open creative zone comprising of our main exhibitions and side exhibitions sourced online and from the local community. we will also have an onsite solo dine restaurant for those who feel isolated and don't have to feel alone when eating. a quiet space for a break from social pressures such as social media and a meditation and relaxation zone to build health and wellbeing.
