Round-ups, newsletters, events and attachments aplenty. So business as usual and let’s get down to it:Five NSUN collections of news, in chronological order, earliest to newest. One, two, three, four, five.

Next, because of authorial privilege, comes your latest (probably last) reminder of Newcastle’s great big Mental Health day event at Grey’s Monument, 10am to 4pm on Saturday the 11th of October. Poster and flyer attached. [Other Mental Health days are available].

World Mental Health day itself falls on the 10th (that’s Friday) of October, and on the afternoon of that day there’s a World Mental Health Day Celebration at
BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art/ Friday 10 October 2014/ 15:30 – 17:30/ Quay Level 2 .
It all ties in with the bARTer project, artworks by service user artists tackling mental health and stigma. Here’s an electronic invite (all are most welcome indeed), and it’s also attached as a pdf.
