Dr Valentina Bold and storyteller Amanda Edmiston present excerpts from Mike Bolam’s film Up the Middle Road and a live storytelling performance, followed by a discussion on how stories can heal and dispel the stigma around mental health.

The event is the natural result of a 2022 project developed at the site of the former Crichton Royal Asylum in Dumfries. Part of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2023.
