Find out how you can get involved on the Mind Website
The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) is one of Scotland's most diverse cultural events, covering everything from music, film and visual art to theatre, dance, and literature.
In 2021, SMHAF will take place from 3-23 May - online at mhfestival.com and in regions across Scotland - and explore the theme of 'Normality?'.
In Renfrewshire, there are more than 20 events planned throughout May, along with 2 exhibitions. Passing Time is a display of poetry across local railway stations and social media, and Mindspace features album covers drawn during lockdown as a reminder of the power of music to support mental health – these will be displayed in a range of windows across Renfrewshire.

Funder of the Week
This week it is Children’s Aid
Children’s Aid donates money to registered children’s charities and deserving causes. The conditions for obtaining a donation can be found in the application section of our website. We do not fund wages, running or training costs and prefer applications for specific items.
Before the end of each financial year, the committee meet and review all applications to ensure they fulfil our criteria. Decisions are made based on funds available as to where we think our donations should best be distributed.
Members of the committee will visit the chosen charities and successful applicants in advance of a donation to present them with a cheque or to view the planned or completed project.
Every penny raised by Children’s Aid is distributed and all members of the committee give all their time and services totally free. If you are involved in, represent, or are a member of a charity and wish to apply for funding or discuss a joint venture for fund raising with Children's Aid , please contact us through our application page.
