Virtually Minded Comic Con - FREE FAMILY EVENT


YMCA Sutton Coldfield's Comic Con event returns for a second year!

To celebrate the success of our Virtually Minded Male Mental Health project and our Virtual Hero Peer Mentors, we are holding a second Comic Con event on Saturday 9th November at North Birmingham Academy.

The Virtually Minded project uses comic book art to get young men talking about mental health, raising awareness and removing the stigma!

As well as showcasing the awesome comic book inspired artwork from our talented group, we have lots of fun, free activities for all the family. Come and join us and try your hand at comic book or urban art, enjoy refreshments, and learn something about mental health.
