World Mental Health Day 2015 Photos

These are a set of photographs which include some animated photos from the perspective of a Playhouse Takeover performer who had to remain inside the Playhouse for most of World Mental Health Day. Some photographs were taken on Thursday, 8th October at the Mental Health & Me Writing Competition Ceremony at Liverpool Central Library, where Professor Green announced the overall winner and one photo is a shot taken in the Brink for Comedy Festival and Mental Health. At the very end of these set of photos is a short YouTube clip of some of the photos put together to music, hopefully when the blog has permission to use a variety of photographs we will put together a fuller version.

Morning Gloryville

” Morning Gloryville brings people together and, through dance, music, touch, yoga and self-expression, together we raise our vibrations and moods. The buzz in the room at our events is infectious and people feel good. It’s impossible not to smile at some point!

Morning Gloryville is an early morning sober rave, but the real value is in keeping healthy in mind, body and soul; building a community who can support each other through the highs and lows. We have received a lot of feedback describing how Morning Gloryville has helped people through depression, periods of grieving, anxiety, or low self-esteem. Each story is unique and very moving, and spreads across the globe throughout the 24 cities hosting Morning Gloryville & similar positive parties.

This is why we are supporting Liverpool’s World Mental Health Day by offering 10 free tickets to our event as part of their programme.”
