First Fortnight – Challenge Mental health Prejudice

First fortnight is well underway at the moment with a full range of evets over the next 12 days

First Fortnight is a charity-based organisation with the express aim of challenging mental health prejudice through the creative arts. We believe the arts allow us to create a space where people can talk about mental health issues in a non-scripted manner. Once that conversation has begun, we hope this will then help to change people’s perceptions about an issue that affects us all with one in four of us set to experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives. With that in mind, we hope to make the First Fortnight of each year synonymous with mental health awareness, challenging
prejudice and ending stigma.

It runs this event annually in Dublin and beyond culminating in a gig in the Button Factory featuring State lights, Brad Pitt Light Orchestra and King Kong Company
