About the Festival

Now in its 18th year, the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival takes place across Scotland and is led by the Mental Health Foundation. It aims to provides a platform for everyone to create and share art inspired by mental health and explores how the arts and creativity can support people to live mentally healthier lives.

By engaging with artists, connecting with communities and forming collaborations, we celebrate the artistic achievements of people with experience of mental health problems, challenge stigma and perceptions, and encourage participation in the arts to promote good mental health for all.
