Get a Reality Check this Friday
The Reality Check Festival is back, giving everyone the
chance to learn more about mental health and wellbeing in a
fantastic festival atmosphere.
With all the performers having either lived experience of
psychosis or lived experience of caring for someone with psychosis,
the festival aims to fight stigma, promote hope, offer easy
accessible information, inspiration, help and support.
The only festival ever to be organized by a whole early
intervention service in the UK, the event will feature live music
and inspirational talks from service users as well as helpful
information stalls about local mental health services. The festival
will have food stalls, music and mindfulness workshops and an
interactive sport stall run by Bristol Rovers Football Community
Mental health worker and festival committee member Jacob Kelly
said: "This is a brilliant event for anyone living with psychosis,
their friends and family or anyone who wants to have a brilliant
time promoting hope and fighting stigma."
The Reality Check Festival 2017 is on Friday 8 September 2017,
12:00 -16:00 at the Trinity Centre, Trinity Rd, Bristol BS2 0NW and
is free and open to all.
