The Tour

The Foolish Optimism Working Group are on tour from 11 October - 4th December 2018.
We are taking the film and the conversation about mental health to communities around Scotland.

What is it?

The Foolish Optimism tour is  a series of workshops across Scotland, during which we will bring the film and the conversation about mental health to as many communities as we can. Each workshop will be run by a few members of the Foolish Optimism Working Group and the exact format of the workshop will depend on how and where the participants have been gathered.

The purpose of the tour is twofold:

  1.  To let young people know that they are not alone, and give them a platform and a methodology to talk openly about mental health.
  2. To gather stories and experiences from around the country to feed into the next stage of the project.

We will be updating the website regularly with details of the tour dates that are coming up, and stories from dates which have happened already. Keep an eye on our blog for updates!
