    So U Think I'm Crazy? - live performance
    Tickets: £10 in advance (£12 on the door) www.frontroom.space
    Last performance of the year! Know My Mind brings So U Think I’m Crazy? back to Croydon to showcase the passion, pain and challenges of mental health. The emotive play will take you on a journey through the streets of London to a secure wing of a psychiatric unit. The drama - told through the eyes of a young black man - fuses music, dance and poetry in a hard-hitting story. The performance will be followed by a question and answer session led by a team of experts exploring the stigma of mental health and the challenges of accessing services and care. Expert panellists will include Eugene Ellis (director of the Black African and Asian Therapy Network); Dr Aggery Burke (leading psychiatrist, consultant and author on racism and mental health); and Dr Kirkpal Sahota (forensic psychiatrist). This event is funded by Croydon Council and supported by Croydon's Black Minority Ethnic (BME) Forum. It is also run in conjunction with Croydon Supplementary Education Project (CSEP) who will be showcasing book stalls, a children's literary fest and live entertainment by singers and poets between 5-7pm.
