A Lust for Life is a national wellbeing movement to transform how we talk about and treat mental health. Our vision is a world where the wellbeing of humanity is the headliner on the main stage, and everything else, a support act. We started our life as a website, and since then, our mission has grown to (1) Support, inspire and empower people to take care of their own minds (2) Change societal/cultural norms around mental health and (3) Change societal infrastructure so that our culture and society always catch people when they fall. We are working together to help break down the stigma around mental health by sharing personal stories and amplifying people’s experiences of a broken mental health system. We are advocating for change at policy level through our website, podcasts and live events. We platform artistic work as a response to mental health to show there are many faces to mental wellbeing and mental ill-health; and many ways of coping, some beyond the reach of words. And we’re currently piloting an innovative new educational digital platform for children (aged 9-12) to share video content, created by them, for them; that address the psychological issues they face day today. Your funding will help us change the conversation on mental health through our website, our podcasts, our creative platforms and exhibitions, our live events, our media reach; as well as helping us to develop this new strand of preventative work with Irish children.
