Story added 15th Feb 2018

Build's theme for this International Women's Day is gender disparity in mental health

Gender Disparity in Mental Health - including 'So U Think I'm Crazy?'

International Women's Day is on Thursday 8 March this year. For our celebrations, we are focusing on gender disparity in mental health, with our Wellbeing department presenting a staging of female director and playwright Ekanem Hines' play 'So U Think I'm Crazy?' plus a series of thought-provoking workshops throughout the day.

'So U Think I'm Crazy?' is performed by the cast of Know My Mind (KMM) Community Theatre Group, who raise awareness about mental health from the perspective of service users and carers.
