CoolTan Arts believes mental wellbeing is enhanced by the power of creativity

Press release Mental Health is Everyone’s Business Most people experience mental distress at some point in their life, either personally or through a family member or friend.
Celebrate World Mental Health Day with CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle Saturday 15th October 2011, 11.30am Start: Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, SE5 8AZ (outside the main entrance) Finish: Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG
Join CoolTan Arts’ BIG Largactyl Shuffle Sponsored Walk from Maudsley Hospital to Tate Modern. This year’s guided cultural walk is entitled ‘No Health without Mental Health’ and delves into the history and social impact of the NHS, ’From cradle to grave’ since 1948. Participate in CoolTan Arts’ sponsored walk, celebrate World Mental Health Day, raise money for CoolTan Arts and help de-stigmatise mental health. Everyone is welcome! Comedian and broadcaster Arthur Smith will be supporting CoolTan Arts, as our Largactyl Shuffle Sponsored Walk patron 2011. Join us for a day of laughter and culture. He says: “Supporting CoolTan’s Sponsored Walk and Promoting World Mental Health Day this year, is something I am pleased to do especially as I have had friends and family who have suffered clinical depression. Since I love both walking and London I am very much looking forward to the walk and to discovering more about Southwark, the area I grew up in. As an occasional (unreliable) tour guide I may need to point out places of interest myself. I am also looking forward to meeting those who'll be at the sponsored Shuffle - kicking the system's boredom into touch.” There will be breaks, poetry readings and other surprises along the route. The walk finishes with a reception and refreshments at Tate Modern: an opportunity to relax and get to know each other. The walk is 5 miles and is suitable for people with disabilities and wheel chair users. Our friendly CoolTan guides will be there to help you. Please bring a packed lunch and drinks, wear suitable clothes and sensible footwear.
