Music meets mental health at Lunchtime Live

The National Centre for Mental Health and Cardiff University Student Wellbeing and Support have joined forces for a special event featuring live acoustic music and a chance for students to learn more about looking after their mental wellbeing.

The Lunchtime Live event takes place in Y Plas at Cardiff University Students’ Union from 11am-2pm on Wednesday 2nd March, a day before University Mental Health Day 2016.

The free event aims to raise awareness of mental health issues, the support available at Cardiff University, and how students can help with research into better diagnosis and treatment.

Live music starts at noon on the day, with acts including singer songwriter Ellie Makes Music who recently enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music and Radio 2 and UK Open Mic Awards runner up John Nicholas.

Cardiff University Acapella society’s all-male Acapellads group will also make an appearance, along with former Donde Stars/New Objects frontman Luke Williams (performing as Luke and the Lifeboat) and the hotly-tipped Maddie Jones, protégé of Welsh folk star Amy Wadge.

Guests can also enjoy a free lunch from 12:30pm, and as well as live music there will be information stalls from the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH), Cardiff University Student Wellbeing and Support and Time to Change Wales.

Colour Me Mindful artist Ana Catris will also be hosting a free mindfulness colouring session and raffling copies of her best-selling books in aid of Mind.
