Description

Doors - 6pm

Come and join us for a night of comedy and open conversation about mental health, courtesy of Dave Chawner.

Dave is an award winning comic, author, campaigner and ambassador for the charity Beat, who is breaking down the stigma around mental health and eating disorders in our society. His new show Mental takes a light hearted look at mental health; something everyone has, rather than mental illness which often has a negative association. As someone who has suffered from an eating disorder himself, Dave hopes to create an environment where eating disorders, and mental health, are no longer a taboo subject.

When asked, what are your reasons for doing this show at Universities? Dave said; “During University I wished someone had shown me that my relationship with food had become disordered. I want to go around campuses and faculties in order to try and raise awareness of eating disorders in a light-hearted, non-preachy way to try and help people who are just like I was”.

So please let’s leave politics, Brexit and all that S#!£ at home - come along to our comedy night instead, join in the conversation, break down the stigma around eating disorders and have a Mental evening of fun and laughter :)
