You don’t have to be mad (to work here)

Canterbury Christchurch University in collaboration with Kent based West End director Mark Lacey (the House of Glass Angels) is developing a brand new, live theatre event that celebrates the courage of people who have survived mental health crises, but who are still marginalized in society.

In order to tackle this important and urgent subject that is currently affecting thousands of people each day and placing a huge strain on services we need your help.

As part of the first phase we are creating a specially invited focus group to a free, one off performance that uses multi-media and original testimony to give a live, direct voice to a real mental health support group from Maidstone. Frankly discussing everything from medication to animal husbandry it is a funny, irreverent and accessible insight into the lives and stories of five real people from Kent who have returned from the brink of suicide to fight another day.

In order to ensure that as many voices as possible are represented we would like to personally invite you to bring your expertise to the project and its theme by contributing to a post-show discussion. Your view and collaboration is necessary and hugely valued.

This is an ideal and unique opportunity to use your experience and voice to reach a wider audience about the human face of mental health in an entertaining and accessible way

Please could we ask to forward this to anyone who you think may be interested – especially from the following groups?

  • Those directly or indirectly affected by chronic mental illness.
  • Those working in psychiatric care or well-being.
  • Charities or funders.
  • Anybody with an interest in the subject.

In order to book your FREE ticket(s) reply to g.m.long138@canterbury.ac.uk stating your name and number of tickets.  Parking is available evenings only
