THE MENTAL WEALTH FESTIVAL
Time & Location
About The Event
“I support the Mental Wealth Festival because there is still a stigma around mental health. People don’t have anywhere to go – to get help, support and share knowledge – and this is exactly the point of the festival. It’s the Glastonbury of mental health.” – Jonny Benjamin MBE, award-winning mental health campaigner and mental wealth festival contributor in 2017 and 2018.
Now in its fourth year, the Mental Wealth Festival is a ground breaking event that highlights how mental health issues impact on so many aspects of daily life. The festival features over 50 talks, debates and workshops by more than 50 contributors, from politicians to health sector innovators, mental health campaigners to business leaders, to famous art institutions and leading charities.
Day one – 10 September – takes place at City Lit focusing on mental health and the workplace and continues in the evening at the Houses of Parliament for a debate and discussion on suicide prevention coinciding with World National Suicide Day (the events in parliament event are invite-only).
Second day – 11 September – takes place at The National Gallery and the focus is mental health at home and within communities. There will be an emphasis on connecting the Gallery’s spaces and collection with events that inspire a sense of purpose and positive social empathy. The festival concludes with an in conversation event with Grayson Perry CBE at The National Gallery.
We are delighted to announce an impressive line-up contributors and speakers this year including: artist Grayson Perry CBE, journalist Bryony Gordon, mental health campaigner Jonny Benjamin MBE, mental health professional Mandy Stevens, Geoff McDonald co-founder of the Minds@Work network and former Global Vice President at Unilever, social entrepreneur Chris Underhill MBE founder of the Basic Needs mental health charity, and many others…
