Blackwell's Mental Health Festival

A special week filled with author talks, workshops, book recommendations, and the provision of information from mental health charities - helping to remove the stigma associated with talking openly about Mental Health.
Blackwells Bookshop, 48-51 Broad St, Oxford OX1 3BQ, Mon 20 May - Sun 26 May 2019

More than just a great bookshop, Blackwells recognises the importance of establishing a connection with its customers and offering something to the community. This special festival aims to help break down the stigma around talking openly about mental health issues, with a series of talks, workshops and information provision from mental health charities.

As part of its mission to connect people to, and through, books, Blackwells aims to help people working with mental health difficulties, those supporting friends and relatives, or those who are simply curious about the human mind.

The events are free, but please register if you wish to attend. For more information, please contact the Customer Service Desk on 01865 333623 or email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk.
