NOW Festival

The concept of the NOW Festival came from a desire to engage young people in creative discussions around the topic of mental health. For many, creative arts are a way to express and challenge opinion concerning the things that matter most to society.

With an estimated one in four people now experiencing some form of mental distress during their lifetime, Liverpool CAMHS partner, the Merseyside Youth Association RAISE team created the NOW festival to provide a platform from which to raise awareness, challenge stigma and explore ways of building resilience and improving mental health.
