On Thursday 29 October we are pleased to bring you:
"Making mental health visible"
by Debbie Roberts, Engage Visually.
Known by many names including visual thinking, graphic facilitation, drawings, graphic recording, visual minutes, mapping to name a few - it's all about the power of the pen in words and simple pictures to engage people interactively or to record the content of their work.
In the webinar we will look at how I fell into this field (very gladly fell into it by the way) and some of the many ways each of us can use and explore visual thinking in learning and in work.
We will then look at how this field is supporting the efforts of increasing awareness and visibility of mental health in areas from coproduction, user activism, education, research, science and onward.
Finally we will explore how you and others can further increase your own creative use of visuals to lever thinking and change.
