A WALK, SONGS & TALKS for MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

by STEVE WHARTON

Along the walk I’ll be staging free, mini-gigs with a talk running between the songs. Although my songs are not overtly about mental health, they do link with themes I’ll be covering in the talk and there’ll be time for discussion afterwards. A couple of the events will also feature some guests, playing music and adding special themes to the evening.
