Mental Health Magazine Launch, Fri 17th January
arts and media |
Friday January 10, 2014 10:42 by HeadSpace
Creative mental health magazine, HeadSpace, would like to invite you to the launch of its second issue at Sweeneys Bar, Dame Street, Dublin 2, on Friday 17th January 2014 at 7.30pm with musical performances and readings from contributors on the night.
The launch, which is free entry, features readings from several HeadSpace contributors, as well as musical performances from CatScat and the Sacreblues Band. Full details are on our facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/1440676819489259/1451844801705794/?notif_t=like.
This issue of Headspace, which is supported by the Rehab Group’s Visual and Performing Arts Fund, features art, poems, fiction, and personal stories from 26 contributors from across the country and as far afield as the United States and Australia. Headspace will be distributed to hospitals across the county, Jigsaw Project centres and other youth centres.
The HeadSpace team is committed to producing a magazine that accurately reflects every aspect of mental health, from maintaining positive mental health to illness and recovery, and the way that mental health and mental illness are perceived in society.
“It’s more acceptable now to talk about mental health than it has been,” Naomi Elster, HeadSpace Editor, commented, “but it’s still a hard conversation to start. Through writing and art we can communicate experiemces to painful to address more directly, and creative arts have always served to start conversation and bring understanding.”
Angela Kerins, Chief Executive, the Rehab Group said, “The Rehab Group’s Visual and Performing Arts Fund is delighted to support this edition of Headspace magazine which offers a unique insight into mental health through a variety of creative mediums. It is an important resource which provides insights into mental health, helps to overcome stigma and promotes positive mental health and well-being”.
HeadSpace magazine was set up to address the lack of relevant reading material in in-patient wards, the lack of understanding of mental health and mental illness in Ireland, and, through creativity and art, to provide both a starting point for discussion on mental health and a forum for people to express and communicate experiences they may find difficult to address directly.
The name HeadSpace was motivated by the idea that in culture and society, we are not given the time or capacity to express, create and think as time is money, but all of us need to buy some 'headspace' in order to maintain positive mental health.
