Within our community there is a huge diversity of knowledge and experience about mental health, that we like to call 'Mental Wealth'. During 2016, the Good Mental Health Cooperative is hosting four Trialogue events in Portsmouth as a means of communicating about mental health through a powerful open dialogue and participatory process called 'Trialogue'. These events have been sponsored by Portsmouth City Council.
Trialogue groups exist in many places in Europe and can help communities to change the perception that only professionals are the experts. Mental health is everyone's business, regardless of their background and experience.
A 'Trialogue' group is a neutral space when people can gather to develop their understanding of mental health issues, and to transform thinking on developing better services and healthy communities.
Trialogue meetings are welcoming and inclusive of all community members, including service users, carers, families, friends, professionals and anyone with an interest in good mental health in the community.
The group meeting will start at 6pm, but you're welcome to come earlier and buy food and refreshments at Le Cafe Parisien before 5.30pm.
The last Mental Wealth Trialogue event of 2016 will be held on 16 November at the same time, in the same venue.
