Get Involved

We welcome interest from people looking to volunteer with the festival and organisations who would like to get involved by developing events in your local area.

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) is a platform for everyone to create and share art inspired by mental health, engaging audiences and participants in regions across Scotland.

Every year, we encourage communities, organisations and artists from across Scotland to get involved in our planning group and develop events in your local area as part of our national programme.

Your activity can include exhibitions, creative workshops, performances, live music, film screenings, discussion events and much more – anything that uses the arts or creativity to engage people in mental health.
