Come and join us for a day of family-friendly fun and games, whilst we speak out about mental health and celebrate the creative talents of people who live with mental health issues.
Bring a picnic and browse the stalls from local community groups, youth groups and support services, before settling at the Mad Pride Main Stage where there will be an array of performances from local musicians, poets and even a sneak preview of a local play about mental health and knife crime from Youth drama Group ‘Up Ere’.
There’s something for all the family with the WUU2 Youth bus, climbing wall, bouncy castles, hat making workshops and Lego garden where kids of all ages can help us build our own working fun fair with the Mad Hatter and all his friends!!
If you prefer a quieter space you can join Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS team in the Wellness Zone, take a mini health check or get involved in short taster sessions of Reiki, Tai Chi, Yoga, Ageless Grace, Trauma Tapping and other holistic therapies for all ages.
Take a moment to reflect or remember those who can’t be with us at the Sea of Hands, leave a message in the Tree of Hope and explore our Labyrinth in The Secret Garden.
Mental health is something we will all struggle with; some just struggle more often than others – we want to reduce the stigma people face because of their mental health issues and we hope you can join us to show people they no longer have to suffer in silence.
