Mental Health - it's everybody's business

Oe in Four FilmFestival banner

The One in Four Film Festival is a week-long free event featuring films which explore the effects of mental ill health upon individuals, communities and families. The aim of the Festival is to raise awareness of and stamp out the stigma associated with mental ill health. The Festival is sponsored by the College of Health and Wellbeing.

Although the screenings are free we will be supporting the Mind Charity this year. We would appreciate any donations of monetary value or donations for the Mind shop.

Now in its 10th year, the UCLan One in Four Film Festival is the only service user and carer-led film festival in the UK. It will run from 10th to 14th October, with the first day marking World Mental Health Day, and aims to bring mental health issues to a much wider audience.

It is organised by UCLan’s Comensus and Service Users and Carers Advisory Group with help from local community support groups, and will show a range of entertaining but informative feature films that highlight a wide range of mental health issues.

A different film will be screened daily at the University’s Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema, with a matinee on the Wednesday afternoon, and each film will be followed by an audience discussion. Two screenings will also be shown on the Burnley campus the following week.
