Compassionate Mental Health Conference (2 days)
25th & 26th April
Venue: Buckland Hall, Bwlch, Brecon Beacons, South Wales LD3 7JJ
Beyond Trauma - finding Solid Ground
Experiential events designed to inform, inspire and empower people living and working with mental distress.
Once again we’re gathering influential speakers who are passionate about changing the script around mental health, challenging stigma and raising expectations.
At this two day transformational we want to challenge the myth of mental illness as a disease for life, and call for a more compassionate, trauma informed approach to mental distress. Ultimately we hope to work with others to inspire a new more wholesome psychiatry, with safe, healing mental health services that people want to use when they are in crisis.
We’ll be bringing together people and families with personal experience, frontline staff, managers, clinicians, commissioners, policymakers and Third Sector staff, to discuss what works in terms of sustainable recovery from a mental health crisis, and to introduce a range of therapeutic approaches that move beyond a purely biomedical model.
Anyone curious about a fresh approach, including people and families with personal experience of mental distress, frontline staff, commissioners, managers, clinicians, policymakers and Third Sector staff.
