MENTAL IDEAS is a noisy, irreverent, unashamedly provocative film & media platform promoting mental health awareness, all forms of artistic self-expression, innovation & social enterprise. Our objective is to move the conversation forward around trending and topical subjects most relevant to artists affected by mental health issues. We accept original artwork, op-eds, short stories (fiction), poetry, music, humor, podcasts and films around the year.

What Mental Ideas Loves

Provocative Theories based on self-research (always citing original sources).

Op-eds told with a strong narrative and unusual voice (800 words).

Interviews with inspiring individuals or organizations.

Original Artwork accompanied by an introduction to you and your work.

Original Photography (as above)

Poetry – film/record your spoken word.

Short Stories (fiction).

Collaborative Concepts. We love bold concepts that can include as many mental idealists as possible.

Humor. We love to laugh!

Films. We accept daring & ingenious shorts and features in any genre throughout the year.

What Mental Ideas Is Not

A Medical Site (though we do occasionally invite experts to offer their insights and opinions).

A Fake News Platform. We get enough of that on the News.

A Troll Hangout. Mental Ideas will permanently block users or contributors who use their ‘voice’ to slander and abuse.

A Literary/ Talent Agency. We do not represent artists, writers or filmmakers in projects that do not relate to our own work.

A Huge Multi-National Corporation. We will reply to every submission and enquiry we receive. Please be patient with us if we take a little time to get back to you. (We aim to respond within 6 weeks.)

A Dating Platform. Inappropriate emails/ comments will be deleted. Sorry!

A Cult. That’s just silly, right??!
