Description

Is there an alternative way of making sense of mental illness that is potentially more empowering and helpful for people experiencing psychological distress?

This film screening and discussion is aiming to open up conversations that will continue at various events over the coming year, with a particular focus on bridging relationships between Mental Health Clinicians and Peers. Have you been affected by mental health issues or supported someone who has? Are you interested in finding out about what developments are happening both locally and worldwide with the aim to expand the bio-medical model paradigm in Psychiatry? Then this event is for you...
