Launching on World Mental Health Day, City Lit’s eighth Mental Wealth Festival took place from 10th-14th October and this year the focus was on the importance of time. The programme of events inspired people to dedicate time to self-care and wellbeing, whether through learning and self-development, spending time with loved ones or engaging in new activities.
The seventh edition of the Mental Wealth Festival took place from 10 – 15 October online, at City Lit and across other venues in London. The Festival provided a forum for informative, challenging and inspiring discussions and workshops focusing on ‘Positive Impact’, and ways to adapt to the changes in our relationships with ourselves, other people, work, home, and the communities in which we live.
The sixth edition of the Mental Wealth Festival took place in an online format from 5 – 10 October, coinciding with World Mental Health Day on 10 October. This year's theme was Recovery and we offered inspiring discussions, debates and interactive workshops focusing on the journey of recovery, resilience, and healing, sharing tools and strategies to support this.
The fifth edition of the Mental Wealth Festival ran in October 2019 to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October 2019. We focussed on relationships, family, friendship and the importance of community and support networks.
In 2018 we celebrated many aspects of life including personal development, home, work and the community. We explored energy and wellbeing, personal stories, recovery (mental health awareness, coping with pressure and stress) and suicide prevention.
This year included talks, debates and workshops by more than 100 contributors, from politicians to health sector innovators, mental health campaigners to business leaders, to famous arts institutions and leading charities. The event was hosted by Baroness Sheila Hollins.
The Mental Wealth Festival 2016 included inspiring talks and contributions by comedian and mental wellbeing advocate Ruby Wax, film star and Hacked Off campaigner Hugh Grant, writer and communicator Alastair Campbell and authors Paul Dolan and Toby Litt.
