They are bringing together people and families with personal experience of mental distress, Third Sector staff, policymakers, front-line staff, managers, clinicians, GPS and academics – to ask how we can build compassionate communities in our mental health services and our own lives.
The influential speakers and facilitators are passionate about changing the script around mental health, challenging stigma and raising expectations. All involved are already influencing change in their field. They’ll introduce and discuss a range of psychosocial approaches that move beyond a disease model of mental health, with a special focus on Open Dialogue, mindfulness, voice dialogue and therapeutic communities.
The two-day programme offers an exciting mix of plenary sessions and workshops to exchange ideas, lessons learned and best practices – with plenty of opportunities for participation, reflection and networking.
The event is Sponsored by GOFAL and the Moondance Foundation
