I’ve had my fair share of mental health problems over the years and still have issues with certain things. I also know how hard it is to ask for help. Loads has been done over the past few years, to help break down the various stigma that are associated with MH issues.
Organisations like Rethink and Time to Change have worked tirelessly to try to change the perceptions of not just the general public, but also the ones suffering. Mind are another organisation who have been fighting the good fight for years and have actually helped me personally on a number of occasions. That’s why I was so happy to see that a night had been organised with the aim of continuing to raise awareness about mental health issues and also getting some much needed cash into Mind’s coffers.
Mind Over Matter is set to take place on 6 August, at The Bedford pub in Balham, SW12. There are some great names involved, including Oracy, Charles Edison, Tyskie and Trinity, all of whom will be performing a selection of spoken word and hip hop. Tickets are available now, with the early birds only setting you back £5. Given the billing for the evening and the good cause it’s supporting, it’s a no-brainer really. Tickets are available here and you can find the Facebook event page here.
