One in Four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives. First Fortnight is a charity-based organisation with the express aim of challenging mental health prejudice through the creative arts. The charity was founded in 2009 and since 2012 has held a two week arts festival at the start of January.

Having already begun January 1st the festival held events featuring several well known speakers, the Conversation Salon on Mental Health, Spoken Word and films dealing with the subject. But it’s not too late as there are still a wide range of events taken place from here until January 18th in Dublin, and for the first time, across the country including Port Laoise, Cork and Kilkenny.
