LAMBETH AND SOUTHWARK MIND FUNDRAISER
All proceeds will go towards funding the Psychosis Therapy Project
Welcome to the 2nd Lambeth and Southwark Mind Annual Lecture held in conjunction with BLOCK336. Last year's event was a sell-out lecture by Darian Leader on 'Working with Psychosis' (the film is on YouTube and PEP web). This year we are turning these ideas into reality. Dorothée Bonnigal-Katz, an author, translator and psychoanalyst and the founder of the Psychosis Therapy Project will reflect on the last four years of establishing this ground-breaking project and on why it is of special value today. Dorothée found that many people experiencing psychosis were rarely deemed eligible for individual talk therapy and were often ill-served by antipsychotic medication and short-term therapies. However, her radical model of specialist treatment, with analysts working one-to-one with people over long periods and through crisis, has had remarkable results. Initially based in Islington, the project is now expanding to South London in the hope of becoming a London-wide service. Please come and be part of it and join us for the launch of the South London Psychosis Therapy Project.
