Mental Health Panel


In the past Eistnaflug has hosted panels on mental health during the festival and this year will be no exception. In addition to the mental health panel, we will host a panel about bullying. 

The panels will take place at Safnahúsið in Neskaupstaður and are sponsored by Alcoa Fjarðarál.


This year’s panel will be followed by attendee Q&A so bring your questions! The goal will be to discuss anxiety and what we can do to cope with it before it gets too serious. Our guests on the panel will be Dr. Sigurlín Hrund Kjartansdóttir, psychologist along with other great guests.
Special guest will be a representative from the Pieta organization.
