Deep Down Arts and WellbeingDeep Down was founded in 2017 by a group of artists in Bangor with lived mental health experience. After open consultations across the county community and with a mental health charity, Deep Down set up three Safe Space creative groups in 2018. These groups convene in a local bar where staff are trained in Action Mental Health’s Safe Talk. The groups have flourished, and members with mental illnesses are regularly creating in poetry, comedy and song. As well as taking part in two festivals, the group has also supported the growth of the Comedy Sketch Club for people with lived mental health experience.
