Our Community Psychology Festival - in September. Expect some ongoing reminders and updates about this! 


There is still a chance to submit proposals to contribute to this vibrant and diverse Festival - under the themes Play, Work, Power and Sustain. We want as many people as possible to participate. 


Perhaps you have been working with some community groups locally and you can facilitate a workshop together? Perhaps you have been doing some policy work that challenges the status quo? Perhaps you have critically explored the ideas of mental health with those with lived experience? Perhaps you're involved in the environmental movement with a well-being focus?


We will be providing bursaries for community activists and groups and those that can please help us do that by adding a 'pay forward' donation to your ticket. We have also kept the tickets as cheap as we can.
