Living Library aims to help the community understand the lived experience of mental illness, tackle stigma and normalise getting help.

At Living Library events instead of borrowing a book, a story is borrowed through a speaker. Speakers talk to and take questions from an audience about their connection to mental health and wellbeing. This could be the lived experience of mental illness, being a carer for family members with mental illness or professional expertise in the mental health sector.

Living Library 2020

The Living Library will happen again on Wednesday 14 October 2020 at Liverpool City Library.

We are looking for speakers to share their stories of resilience through life’s challenges. We are keen to hear from young people, older people, LGBTIQA+, refugee, and migrant communities. For a list of previous Living Library speakers, click here.

If you would like to share your story at the Living Library

  1. Read the information sheet
  2. Complete an Expression of Interest.

Expression of Interest closes 17 July 2020

All personal information submitted through the expression of interest will remain confidential. For more information please contact:
