The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, in partnership with See Me Scotland, has an opportunity for volunteers with lived experience of mental health issues to join our Talking Heads reporter project.

Each year, the Talking Heads project brings together a team of volunteers to produce digital content —including written, filmed and audio content—to cover events during the festival and challenge mental health stigma.

Content will be shared widely by SMHAF and See Me, so this is a great opportunity to get involved with the arts and make your voice heard. You will also participate in workshops covering journalism, podcasting and writing about mental health and stigma.

Following the festival, there may be opportunities for some participants to connect with See Me’s regular volunteer programme.

If you are interested in taking part in the project, please send a CV and/or a short covering letter to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The deadline for applications is 12pm on Monday 8th April.
