Ravers in Glasgow will be clubbing for a cause this weekend as legendary Glasgow nightclub, The Arches teams up with Mental Health Foundation to create Changing Minds. With the help of megastar DJ Felix Da Housecat, Changing Minds hopes to do just that, with an event to bring awareness and challenge preconceptions of mental illness. This Saturday will see the American DJ take to the decks at The Arches along with fellow Chicago House stars, DJ Pierre and Marshall Jefferson for a stomping night that's set to be one of the biggest club gigs this summer in Glasgow.
As three quarters of lifetime mental illness arises by the time people are in their mid-twenties, Glasgow's clubbing contingent are just the kind of people Changing Minds wants to target in fighting stigma and discrimination. And with the help of an eccentric multi-genre DJ, here's hoping this Glasgow night out will leave people with not just sore heads, but open minds the next morning.
