Stand-Up Comedy by Headspace Group

Stand-up comedy from people with mental health issues and autism alongside professional comedians.

Based at the Octagon Theatre, Headspace is an exciting and creative outlet for people with Mental Health issues, without direct focus upon these. A forum where people can freely express their unique traits, individuality and utilize their skills by primarily focusing on positive, personal, social and professional achievement and success and not on mental health. Headspace promotes positive change for the individual and challenges misconceptions often held by society.  

‘Headspace has helped people to develop their skills because we are challenged to work at a higher level but in a safe environment. We are supported to try new things and to develop in depth understanding to a professional level. We are not treated differently because of our mental health problems.’ (Headspace Participant)
