Who’s it for?

The event is for anyone curious about a compassionate approach to mental health. We bring together people and families with personal experience, front-line staff, commissioners, managers, clinicians, GPs, policymakers and Third Sector staff, to explore what works for people recovering from a mental health crisis

What’s it about?

It’s part of our ongoing bid to change the conversation around mental health, and encourage more compassionate ways of moving beyond labels that frame distress as disorders for life.

We’re bringing inspiring speakers and facilitators for two days of conversation and workshops.

The theme of this Spring ‘s gathering is ‘Beyond Trauma - Finding Solid Ground’, and we’ll be focusing on how to build a compassionate, safe mental health service that people want to use when they’re in crisis.

We’ll draw on themes of meaning, connection and community - the things we know make a difference to people experiencing distress. And join calls for a trauma informed mental health service that takes account of people’s stories and social contexts.

Our key message remains that a mental health crisis can become a meaningful turning point and catalyst for change. Along with many other critical voices - we are calling for a radical shift in the way we understand mental health, changing the script, challenging stigma and raising expectations.

This is a gathering and unconference, but there are key learning outcomes associated with mental health transformation, moving towards a more co-productive, psychosocial approach and creating a new narrative.

Each gathering has been held in a stunning venue that is therapeutic in its own way. This time it’s beautiful Buckland Hall near Crickhowell.

Lets leave behind our professional and personal roles and labels, build community and connection, and move forward together to create positive change.

What do people say?

“Exceptional. The fact people had travelled from far and wide shows the high regard the event was held in, and also the pressing need to change and the delivery of compassionate mental health services.”

“Above all people were able to release shame , guilt and silence around their stories and to find like minded community.”

“Such a blessing. An oasis. I felt privileged to be a part of it. Beautifully organised, to the last detail. The professional delivery of the event was outstanding and the supporting literature of excellent quality.”

"You have created a unique and invaluable contribution to the future of mental health. My daughter took her own life two years ago. I believe if either she or I had had access to the material and the diverse community you have put together, there could have been a very different outcome.”
