In a new partnership with Cheltenham Festivals, National Literacy Trust and Mind, we’re inviting all schools, young people, their teachers, supporters and carers to join Beyond Words for World Mental Health Day, a national creative project where students can put into words their feelings about a year like no other and submit their pieces. For every submission the Bupa Foundation will donate £1 to each charity partner. A selection of pieces may be published in an anthology.
Beyond Words for World Mental Health Day runs from 14 September – 18 October but you can submit your work up to 30 November. We’re also adding more awards! Participants who enter before 18 October will be notified if they have won an award by 30 October. Those who enter the project after 18 October will be notified if they have won an award by 23 December.
Beyond Words for World Mental Health Day is supported by Cheltenham Festivals, Mind, National Literacy Trust and the Bupa Foundation.
Beyond Words is a year-round creative writing project by Cheltenham Festivals as part of its education strategy. It’s designed to increased the wellbeing, confidence and literacy of 14-16 year olds who are too physically or mentally unwell to attend school.
