This Funzing Experience:

This touching, witty and poignant talk reveals the life affirming truth of what really goes on behind the locked doors of a major psychiatric ward. You’ll hear stories of ordinary people who found themselves ‘locked-up’.

Listening to this talk, once you compare ‘life inside’ to your own professional life ‘outside, you may even conclude: ‘there by the grace of god go I” … or ask yourself what really madness is anyway?

One in six adults has a mental health condition. One in 100 has a severe mental illness. The numbers are rising relentlessly…

When people hit rock-bottom – the State often has little alternative than to commit them to a psychiatric ward. (Assuming a space is available).

What is it really like to be locked in such a facility? Is UK’s system of dealing with the increasing numbers of people with a mental illness genuinely working, or has the system been stretched to its limits?


Venue: O'Neill's


Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.


*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
