Mental Health or IMH. Known for its lush greenery and peaceful grounds, the IMH provides a serene and calm environment which may offer fresh inspirations and ideas that you may just be looking for!

One of the winners from this year’s competition will have his/her winning play developed by theatre professionals into a full production. This production will be taken on a performance tour to the South East District in the first quarter of 2016.
