Maudsley Charity Showcase EventPosted: April 18, 2014
On Tuesday 13 May 2014, Maudsley Charity is inviting the public and SLaM staff to learn more about how it benefits service users and the community.
The showcase event, which is being held at the ORTUS Centre between 6pm-8pm, coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from 12 – 18 May.
There will be opportunity to learn about the wide range of projects that the charity supports, including:
- Hearing Things – a drama-based programme which explores mental health care experiences using theatre techniques. The project aims to build rapport with service users and help educate the public on mental health.
- Anxiety Arts Festival 2014 – a sneak peek at the new London-wide arts festival organised by the Mental Health Foundation. The festival will explore the causes and effects of anxiety and will bring leading and emerging artists, musicians and performers together for a dynamic programme of events.
- Mind and Soul Choir –a community choir which aims to break down barriers associated with mental health and improve wellbeing through singing. The choir was formed in Lambeth in 2006 and their director, Lea Cornthwaite, is also Musical Director for The Royal Opera House Youth Company.
It is entirely free to attend and promises to be an informative and enjoyable evening.
