Out of Her Mind

A very long time ago it wouldn’t have been wise to admit to being a witch. Or later; a woman with a sexual appetite.  Not so very long ago, you couldn't say you were gay.  Then you couldn't talk about suffering from the big 'C'  word.  Mental illness is the last, most pernicious taboo, and it is high time it went the way of the others. One in four people will experience mental health problems at some point in their lives, and the NHS spends more tackling it than cardiovascular disease and cancer combined.  There is absolutely no doubt that mental ill health will happen either to us, or someone we love – so why on earth are we still so afraid to open up and talk about it? 

One of Britain’s best-loved comedians, writers, and mental health campaigners blasts into Bestival to open up and shake us out of this last, lingering taboo.

Join us at Bestival at the Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight for a chance to listen, learn, debate and discuss. Grab a coffee and head to the Ambient Forest to flex your mind muscle and get enlightened.
