A host of comics have being recruited to take part in a comedy festival to promote mental health
It has been organised by the charity MIND to spread the word about the mental health issue.
They say the festival was conceived because of the "many links between mental health and comedy, including the fact that many people in comedy have 'come out' as having mental health problems and are not discriminated against because of it."
Organisers say they were also frustrated about the way comedy can reinforce stereotypes, and thought that alternative comics could help challenge attitudes, as they have done with racism and sexism.
The issue has been flamed this week when The Sun branded Frank Bruno 'bonkers' after he was admitted to a mental health unit. The paper backtracked - though not apologised - following a storm of protest, and launched a fundraising campaign for Sane.
