Mind Matters – Spoken Word Event
We were delighted to attend the recent Mind Matters event at The Great Barn in Titchfield, hosted by Charlotte from Havant.
The spoken word event saw local writers produce mental health related stories, which were then read and performed by local actors. A huge thank you to Charlotte and everyone involved in the event, that included live music from Les Kasooz d’Amour, food and a raffle.
The event took place on the evening of Thursday 3rd October and revolved around nineteen short stories written by local authors and members of the local community with direct or indirect experience of mental health issues. The stories covered a range of themes, including the isolation of old age, depression, loneliness, memory loss, psychosis, autism and Pica. They were written in various styles from comic, to the poetic and memoir.
Thank you to Titchfield Festival Theatre, who donated use of the Great Barn for the event. In total the evening raised over £500 for HEH Mind.
