Venue:  Regent Hall, 275 Oxford Street, London W1C 2DJ

Time:  9.30 am - 5.00 pm

The 2017 Peer-supported Open Dialogue conference is upon us. Peer-supported Open Dialogue is a form of patient-driven, relationship-centred mental healthcare that brings friends, families and peers together to support the person experiencing distress, helping them make sense of their experience and plan a way forward together. This is different to the 1:1 care most receive today, and the emphasis is on enabling the person at the centre of care to take control and gain a sense of agency together with their social network from day one.

Last year we had several hundred people join us to hear a combination of clinicians and service users talking, very movingly, about their experiences of Open Dialogue and the difference it has made to their lives. This year we aim to take things a step further. The conference will be based around a series of dialogues that clinicians and clients will share with us, as they take us into a deeper understanding of what Open Dialogue is and how they are integrating it into their work and their lives. In the afternoon we will also have academics from the UK and internationally, talking about the latest research into Open Dialogue, with some announcements about its future in the NHS, and the evaluations taking place.

Tickets are available here on a donation basis – so pay as much or as little as you like – and it all goes to the cause of promoting Peer-supported Open Dialogue in the NHS. The event is sponsored by NELFT NHS Trust, and its Open Dialogue informed national referral service, Dialogue First.
