Northern Ireland Mental Health Arts Festival is a festival highlighting mental health by showcasing arts events across Northern Ireland. With arts on offer from visual arts and photography, poetry and song to psychodrama, music, comedy and film, the festival promises to put transformation on the agenda across Northern Ireland.

Founded in 2013, the Northern Ireland Mental Health Arts Festival (NIMHAF) was the first of its kind in Northern Ireland.

NI Mental Health Arts Festival invites you to submit:

• A work of self-penned poetry on the theme of ‘Isolation’.
• an artwork on the theme of ‘Identity’ for inclusion in an online exhibition

The festival has been able to commission Artists, Comedians, Performers, Musicians and Writers from Northern Ireland to make work for this very special festival.

Each one of the commissioned works made by people with lived experience of having mental health issues.

This year's festival will be jumping online and will coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week from 18th -24th May.
