KELTY Community Cinema is aiming to put mental health on the big screen when they hold a special event next month.

The day-long occasion will encourage people to look at mental health and raise awareness of it through film.

The group's Head of programming, Wayne Hayles, said the day – which is taking place on September 15 – is being held in partnership with mental health charity SPEAK.

"The reason we organised the event was there were a couple of suicides in the area. With us being a major part of the area, we felt we needed to do something," he said.

"When we had our film festival, we were in collaboration with the charity SPEAK. Just after the festival, there was one of the suicides in Kelty itself and we felt we needed to do something to address it. We had wanted to do something straight away but everything was a bit raw so we decided to wait a little bit.

"We wanted to do an event that gets to the heart of it. We wanted to do something actively. We had the idea of maybe screening a couple of films and being able to create a more relaxing atmosphere.

"We are going to show the film Inside Out and going to have an event with Kelty Arts where they can do arts and use their imagination. We have a fair few stalls going on with different mental health charities.

"We have got a sports coach coming and teaching people about how keeping yourself fit can improve your mental health.

"People can just turn up on the day. If they want to sit and watch a film it is £3 a film but if they don't want to and just want to look about, it is a free thing."

Rosie Mckearnon, CEO of SPEAK, will be giving talks throughout the day while representatives from other mental health charities will also be in attendance.

A screening of Inside Out will take place at 11 am while Girl, Interrupted, will be shown at 2pm for over 15s.

All profits from the day will go to SPEAK. For more information on the event, visit Kelty Community Cinema's Facebook page.
