An increasing number of people, groups and organisations are becoming concerned with the current paradigm of pathologising and labelling human experiences and understandable reactions to trauma and adversity.
Whilst many of us are working to challenge this, from both inside and outside the system, we are acutely aware that we still have a long way to go.
In this one day event, the Hearing Voices Network England seek to bring together all those people and organisations who seek change to explore.
- what needs to change?
- what can we do differently to make it happen?
