The Last Photo Exhibition

September 5 @ 10:00 am - September 10 @ 3:00 pm

Free

Derbyshire Voluntary Actions Mental Health Liaison Service and The Georgia Bird Foundation are very proud to be working in collaboration with SoBS Chesterfield, The Tomorrow Project, Mentell, Kakou and a number of amazing volunteers to hold an impactful exhibition, sharing real life local stories around mental health and suicide in a safe and supportive space. The event will also be highlighting the power of art and creativity in supporting people’s mental health and will be showcasing the wonderful work of our mental health community sector.

The event has been inspired and supported by CALM’s Last Photo exhibition in London, which saw the displaying of peoples last photos before taking their lives. CALM’s event has raised so many important questions around how suicide doesn’t always look suicidal, and how we can spot signs of when people may be struggling.

Our community exhibition will take place from 5 September until World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th September from 10am to 3pm at Derbyshire Voluntary Actions Hub @ Low Pavement. On Saturday the 10th September we will be holding a public living room in front of the large screen at Vicar Lane, where members of the public can chat to mental health workers about mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
