Description


"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." Harvey Fierstein


Join us on Friday 17 May 2019 for an engaging and thought-provoking review of some of the real-life challenges facing the LGBT community in the UK. The day will cover the everyday impact of these challenges on mental health and wellbeing, and how some of these issues might be successfully addressed.

Find out how confidence and resilience can be nurtured and improved using novel, straightforward and practical techniques.

Listen to knowledgeable and inspirational speakers, hear about real case studies, understand the impact of an innovative approach to improving health and wellbeing and put your questions to an expert panel.
