About this Event

Poetry for Mental Health (LGBTQIA+) is a 2-hour virtual workshop that uses the power of poetry and film to unite folks in community, connection, and conversation around mental health topics related to the LGBTQIA+ community.

This interactive, online experience will feature an anonymous, chat-based discussion on mental health and the stigma that frequently surrounds mental illness.

Following this will be a live screening of three award-winning short films, poetry writing exercises to help us express our thoughts, and a collective exploration around what the work means for us as individuals.

The event will culminate in a panel of lived-experience speakers and mental health resources, empowering us to share our own stories and access support available to us in these uncertain times.
