Tackling the Mental Health Crisis in Liverpool
Wed 10 May 2017, 17:00 – 19:00 BST
Liverpool is the second most unequal place in the UK in terms of wellbeing, according to a recent report from 'What Works Wellbeing'. The city is facing increasing cuts to crucial health service providers, while the most vulnerable continue to live in adversity.
As part of the Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14 May, 2017) the Heseltine Institute is organising a seminar on the mental health crisis in Liverpool to discuss some of these recent developments. Claire Stevens, Development Manager at Liverpool Mental Health Consortium (www.liverpoolmentalhealth.org), will be sharing her experience of working in the voluntary, community and public sector. She will raise awareness about the effects that austerity and welfare reforms have had on the most vulnerable from a service user perspective, and talk about the role of peer support in tackling the mental health crisis in Liverpool.
