Mental Health & Me 2015

Due to popular demand we have extended our Mental Health and Me competition deadline until Friday 18th September. So there's still time to get your entries in, with 7 categories - there's no excuse! 

Liverpool’s Mental Health Consortium & Writing on the Wall are delighted to announce that the ‘Mental Health & Me’ writing competition is back for its second year! As part of Liverpool’s World Mental Health Week celebrations on Thursday 8th October 2015, we are inviting you to send us an original response to the expression ‘Mental Health & Me.’ Last year’s competition was one of the highlights of the World Mental Health Day programme & attracted a wide selection of creative work across 6 categories – poetry, short stories, diary pieces or blog posts, letters, a piece of journalism, or even a tweet. This year, we’re adding a brand new category - Spoken Word - which we hope will appeal to the creative flair of even more people.

We would encourage entries from anyone with an interest in Mental Health & Wellbeing. If mental distress has affected you or someone close to you, if you have experience as a carer or a professional, or if you have a particular interest in the subject of mental health for any reason, we want to hear from you. Critical voices are also welcome!

This year’s competition is open to anyone living within Merseyside (Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, Wirral, St Helens) and to all age groups.
