About this Event

Working with the whole person:

Alcohol, mental health and complex needs

Alcohol Change UK’s annual conference in WalesWednesday, 23 September 2020Coed-y-Mwstwr Hotel, Coychurch, Bridgend, CF35 6AF

Alcohol misuse is often just one symptom of the complex challenges someone faces in their life. Drinking may be a means to cope with underlying trauma or ongoing mental distress. It may bring its own problems with it, such as low mood and impaired cognition.

Such complex needs don’t lend themselves to simple solutions. That’s why we’re gathering together a multidisciplinary slate of academics, practitioners, and people with lived experience, to help us all work towards interventions that support the whole person. Speakers will include:

  • Anne Campbell, on what the evidence tells us about the interface between alcohol and mental health
  • Victoria Williams, on supporting people living with post-traumatic stress
  • Bev John, Gareth Roderique Davies, and Mike Ward, on the wide range of impacts alcohol can have on the brain, and how we can tackle them
  • Bristol’s Golden Key project, on their practical approach to creating new futures for those with the most complex needs
  • Josh Connolly and Chelsey Flood, telling their own mental health stories.
