The Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival

The Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film FestivalThe Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival offers Scotland an unrivalled opportunity to change the way that individuals think about mental health.

Thursday 13th October 2011
from 7 – 9pm
This is a free event, but booking is required.

Mental health issues touch us all in one way or another so why can’t we seem to talk about it? Inside Out is a devised drama which explores everyday occurrences of mental health related stigma and the way in which people from a variety of backgrounds deal with it. This gritty portrayal of everyday issues is inspired by the real life experiences of service users, carers and their families.

This play was devised by Ayr College Acting and Performance students in partnership with The Ayrshire Panel of Reference Users and Carers Consultative Group and supported by The Ayrshire Anti-Stigma Group and other local Mental Health User and Carer Groups. It is followed by a post play discussion where the audience can ask members of a panel questions in relation to the play.
