The Clinical Psychology Fringe Festival was developed by a group of psychologists, mental health professionals, service users and artists united by the idea of creating a programme of events which ‘put mental health at the heart of the Arts’. The Psych Fringe was designed to run in parallel with the annual conference for the Division of Clinical Psychology of the British Psychological Society, and in this way provide an energetic and creative counterpoint to the conference itself. The Psych Fringe featured music, spoken word and live performances by people with personal experience of the mental health services, taking conversations about mental health out of the therapy room and into streets and venues across Liverpool city centre in order to explore what mental health means in the 21st century.
