#TAPLectures

At The Advocacy Project, we invite renowned national experts to give talks on topical issues. The lectures are open to our staff, service users and partners – plus anyone who’s interested and would like to join us. The session includes time for questions and discussion.

New ideas in mental health care planning with Tania Gergel

Tania, Wellcome Trust Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellow, will talk about law and practice surrounding current provision for advance care planning in mental health. You will find out about existing policies there are in this area, and discuss some current ideas for reform. Find out about a particular type of advance care planning which is being developed within the research group Tania works with.

Tania is a Wellcome Trust Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Mental Health and Justice research project, where her work focuses on advance directives in bipolar disorder, as well as working with the McPin Foundation to coordinate patient and public involvement. Although Tania’s academic background was in ancient philosophy, her research now focuses on mental health, ethics and law, with areas of interest including: advance decision-making and decision making-capacity; the ethics of coercion and leverage within psychiatry; personhood and mental disorder; and stigma.

Please join us in the conference room located on the first floor, stair well is on the right hand side of the car park.
