Moray's Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2019, which launched on May 4, continues until the end of this month.

Run by the non-profit organisation ARTS for Wellbeing, it aims to promote engagement in the arts as a way to create greater mental wellbeing and assist recovery from mental illness, trauma or addiction.

This year's theme is Connected and the festival has included talks, exhibitions, music events, family days, and creative workshops.
