First Fortnight's mission is to challenge mental health stigma and prejudice through arts and cultural action.
We run a national mental health arts and culture festival every January.
January 2020 saw 134 events across 17 counties with over 140 volunteers and over 8100 attendees.
It's only through consistent changes in our community, society as a whole can be changed.
To help grow and develop this positive mental health community across the country, we need YOUR HELP fundraising!
Our volunteers are our Ambassadors and the true Change Makers.
Thanks to all who have volunteered their time, energy and possibly runners to help First Fortnight. You continue to blow us away with your support!
Since 2013, First Fortnight also runs Creative Therapies service for those with mental ill health who are at risk or are currently experiencing homelessness.
First Fortnight will be opening up an additional service in 2020 which will see arts creating a positive mental health impact on vulnerable children at a critical time.
All funds raised will go towards helping us with our advocacy work through the festival and services.
