Mental Health Ireland’s Let’s Get Creative Competition


Welcome to Mental Health Ireland’s Let’s Get Creative Competition, a new twist on our annual Art and Photography Competition for Schools and Youthreach across the country. Each year, we invite young people to show off their love for the creative, to explore and express their artistic talents while encouraging students, teachers and parents to open up the mental health dialogue and encourage mental health championing.

This year’s Theme Nobody Like Me

You are one of a kind. There’s nobody else like you in the whole world. Show off your creative talents to tell us– what makes you unique? This could be a skill, a strength, an accomplishment, an ambition, a dream, an experience.

Let’s get creative and celebrate the power of difference!
